Sipnosis

If Frida Kahlo's works are well known to the general public, whose beautiful self-portraits reveal her dark beauty and flowery hair, her life may be less so. Yet her out-of-the-ordinary destiny was marked by intense physical suffering that she transcended through the love of her art. In this book intended for a young audience, Sophie Faucher lends her voice to Frida the child who recounts through the joys and sorrows of her daily life. The deep texts, imbued with a disarming naivety and great tenderness are magnified by the richly coloured illustrations of Cara Carmina. Here is a story that encourages reflection on self-acceptance, respect for difference, while creating an unexpected emotion and a great desire to know more about this exceptional woman and artist.
