The Bookseller

“This dreamy story reveals more – and rewards more – the longer you look at the illustrations. You feel like you have stepped into one of Frida Kahlo’s own paintings. Everywhere, there are surreal little touches (a cactus with arms, a plane made of fruit); everything infused with a sunburnt, stone-baked palette. Not only will any grown-up Frida Kahlo fans love this book, but plenty of children will relate to its themes of bullying and belonging, imagination and hope.”


“Themes of belonging, creativity and hope resonate through the book. This beautiful picture book is a worthy tribute to an iconic artist.”
