By Zena Alkayat, illustrated by Nina Cosford, pub. Frances Lincoln, £12 hardback

This playful little book, part of the Life Portraits series, traces Kahlo’s life and work, from her childhood battle with polio and debilitating injury as a result of a traffic accident to her relationship with the Mexican muralist Diego Rivera and her artistic inspirations and influences. Accompanied by child-like illustrations and printed in a quasi hand-written typeface, it is an ideal introduction for a young reader to this extraordinary artist.
