The Making of Viva Frida!

Friday, September 5th, 2014 / Share your comments...

Yuyi Morales used photography, 3d and 2d art to create her beautifully stunning biography of Frida Kahlo for the young reader. This bilingual text offers the perfect starting point to introduce young readers to the wonder that is Frida Kahlo, one of the world’s most famous and unusual artists. Her art is still revered around the world. Her life was filled with laughter, love, and tragedy, all of which influenced what she painted on her canvases. Yuyi Morales brings to life Frida Kahlo’s journey. Watch the video to learn more about how Morales and Tim O’Meara combined their talents to create this unusual picture book for children. Children are sure to pour over the tiny details Morales infused into her art and may even be inspired to create their own.

Yuyi Morales is an author, artist, and puppet maker and was the host of her own Spanish-language radio program for children. She has won numerous awards, including the Jane Addams Award, three Pura Belpre Medals and three Pura Belpre Honors. Her talents make this a one of a kind picture book.

Already receiving praise from several publications, be sure to pick up your own copy of this truly wonderful work of art.

“Kahlo’s unusual life story, background, and art have made her a frequent topic of biographies. Morales’s perception of her creative process results in a fresh, winning take on an artist who has rarely been understood . . . Morales’s art and O’Meara’s photographs take this book to another level.” – School Library Journal, STARRED REVIEW

“Frida is presented less as a historical figure than as an icon who represents the life Morales holds sacred; Frida lives because she loves and creates.” -Publisher’s Weekly, STARRED REVIEW
