Publisher Comments:

This long-awaited companion to Jonah Winter's acclaimed DIEGO features the paintings of young Spanish artist, Ana Juan. This stunning picture book is the perfect gift for art enthusiasts of all ages.

When her mother was worn out from caring for her five sisters, her father gave her lessons in brushwork and color. When polio kept her bedridden for nine months, drawing saved her from boredom. When a bus accident left her in unimaginable agony, her paintings expressed her pain and depression - and eventually, her joys and her loves. Over and over again, Frida Kahlo turned the challenges of her life into art. Now Jonah Winter and Ana Juan have drawn on both the art and the life to create a playful, insightful tribute to one of the twentieth century's most influential artists. Viva Frida!

Synopsis:

Masterful artist D.B. Johnson captures the famous surrealist painter Magritte by telling the story of his mischievous hat! In this playful and innovative romp, readers can alter the artwork with four transparent pages, adding to the surrealism and whimsy of the experience!and#160;

Synopsis:

"Everything we see hides another thing, we always want to see what is hidden by what we see." and#8212;Rene Magritte

D.B. Johnson writes andand#160;illustrates the surreal story of famous surrealist painter Rene Magritte and his very mysterious (and mischievous!) hat. While the art reflects some of Magritte's own work, the text sets readers on a fun and accessible path to learning about the simpler concepts behind Mr. Magritte's work.

This delightful picture book captures the playfulness and the wonderment of surrealist art. Four transparent pages add yet another level of surrealism to the illustrations as pictures can be altered with the turn of a page.

Synopsis:

The life story of revered Mexican artist Frida Kahlo is presented in this age-appropriate biography. Full color.
