Frida Kahlo and Her Animalitos


A unique look at Frida Kahlo - her extraordinary life and pets - from acclaimed author Monica Brown and Christopher Award, Golden Kite Award, Pura Belpré Honor - winning artist John Parra.

Frida Kahlo and Her Animalitos chronicles Frida's life - from her childhood to her rise as one of the world's most influential painters - capturing the beauty and strength of Frida's creative spirit, which carried her through tragedy and triumph, and the animals that inspired her along the way. Brown's innovative theme - playfully considering how Frida embodied characteristics of each of her beloved pets (two monkeys, a parrot, three dogs, two turkeys, an eagle, a black cat, and a fawn) - coupled with Parra's bold-colored art, reminiscent of Frida's palette, make this biography a warm and wonder-filled offering for Frida Kahlo fans old and new.
