Special Order
Amy Novesky’s picture book Me, Frida is an exhilarating true story that encourages children to believe in themselves so they can make their own dreams soar—illustrated by Caldecott Medal and Pura Belpré Honor winning illustrator David Diaz.
Like a tiny bird in a big city, Frida Kahlo feels lost and lonely when she arrives in San Francisco with her husband, the famous artist Diego Rivera. But as Frida begins to explore San Francisco on her own, she discovers the inspiration she needs to become one of the most celebrated artists of all time.
“The writing is lucid, the emotions are universal, and the illustrations soar. Glowing with warm, vibrant colors, the charcoal and acrylic paintings create distinctive, statuesque people within imaginatively conceived landscapes, cityscapes, and interiors.” —Booklist
Amy Novesky is an award-winning author whose books include Love Is a Tutu and Love Is a Truck. She lives just north of San Francisco.

David Diaz is the Caldecott Medal–winning illustrator of Smoky Night. He is also a three-time Pura Belpré Honor recipient. He lives in Carlsbad, California.
