In this new series, discover the lives of outstanding people from designers and artists to scientists. All of them went on to achieve incredible things, yet all of them began life as a little child with a dream. The second book follows Frida Kahlo, whose desire to study medicine was destroyed by a childhood accident. Frida began painting from her bedside and produced over 140 works, culminating in a solo exhibition in America. This inspiring and informative little biography comes with extra facts about Frida's life at the back.

    Comments about Frida Kahlo:

    Bought this for my little girl who's 3 and a half years. It's perfect for bedtime reading and a lovely message about determination and daring to be different. Can't wait to purchase the other books in the series over time.

    "One children's books series trying to fight back... by telling the inspiring stories of women who overcame adversity and made history by pursuing their childhood dreams." * Toronto Star * "Brilliantly accessible and inspiring" * Rhino Reads * "The kind of books that adults will covet and collect as well... The language and structure is simple enough for young readers, while a biographical timeline at the end of each book offers greater historical complexity" * Irish Times *
