Illustrating an excerpt from the diary of Frida Kahlo, this whimsical picture book captures the imagination of childhood and the enduring power of art to inspire, transform, and provide comfort and escape. Frida’s black-and-white world becomes awash with color when she visits her imaginary friend. The love and laughter the two share stay with her as she grows, continuing to bloom within her art. Children will be encouraged to explore their creativity, while adults may be inspired to rekindle it.
