* “An outstanding introduction to an influential artist” (Publishers Weekly, starred review) Read the review.> “Frida shows us a girl who finds a way to be happy despite great difficulty, and becomes a woman whose art touches people around the world. In the hands of Jonah Winter and Ana Juan, this seems a grand accomplishment, worth celebrating.” (The New York Times Book Review) Read the review.>
“A bold, successful attempt at incorporating the feel of the artist’s own style into an explanation of her life.” (School Library Journal)
“A quietly lyrical encounter with a particular artistic spirit, emphasizing not the traditional measures of achievement but the more personal experiences and impulses that could also drive any reader of the book. This will lure dreamers with its serenely fantastical view and invite them to dream their own artistry.” (Bulletin of the Center for Children’s Books, “Big Picture” Cover review). Read the review.>
“Winter consistently manages to convey much with a few well-chosen words.” (The Horn Book)
