The Great Lives in Graphics series is a new way of looking at the lives of famous and influential people. It takes the essential dates and achievements of each person's life, mixes them with lesser-known facts and trivia, and uses infographics to show them in a fresh visual way that is genuinely engaging for children and young adults. The result is a colourful, fascinating and often surprising representation of that person's life, work and legacy. Using timelines, maps, repeated motifs and many more beautiful and informative illustrations, readers learn not just about the main subject of the book but also about the cultural background of the time they lived in. You may already know that Frida Kahlo was an artist, but did you know she lived in a bright blue house? Or that she owned two pet spider monkeys? This graphic retelling of Frida's story gives children a colourful snapshot of her life and the world she grew up in, while educating them on everything from the Mexican revolution to the importance of self-belief. AGES: 8 to 12
