Description

This beautifully imagined tale of artistic struggle and perseverance is inspired by Frida Kahlo's Self Portrait with Monkeys. Illustrated with paintings that recall Kahlo's bold, colourful style, it takes readers inside Kahlo's bedroom, where she typically painted, and shows how the artist brilliantly incorporated the natural world into her work

Frida is lying in her bed, imprisoned by painful injuries she sustained in an accident.

She yearns to paint, but can only manage to sing what is in her imagination. Suddenly, a jar of paintbrushes falls off her nightstand and a pool of vibrant colour spreads across the floor. A monkey called Caimito scurries to help her with his friends, gathering her brushes, paint and canvas as well as all the items that Frida mentioned in her song – fruit, birds, flowers, and butterflies.

This beautifully imagined tale of artistic struggle and perseverance is inspired by Frida Kahlo's Self Portrait with Monkeys. Illustrated with paintings that recall Kahlo's bold, colourful style, it takes readers inside Kahlo's bedroom, where she typically painted, and shows how the artist brilliantly incorporated the natural world into her work.
