‘The picture book biopic of Frida Kahlo in the very successful Little People, Big Dreams series is very carefully judged. It doesn’t sugarcoat Frida's injuries or her struggles with chronic pain, nor does it indulge in triumph-over-adversity clichés, but looks at her disability as part of who she is as a woman and an artist. Frida is shown with a range of mobility aids, which is a bonus.’—James Catchpole, Caboodle
