Written by Maria Isabel Sanchez Vegara and illustrated by Gee Fan Eng, the slim hardback books have a luxurious art-book appeal: they are the kind of books that adults will covet and collect as well. The stories focus on obstacles overcome and happy endings. The language and structure is simple enough for young readers, while a biographical timeline at the end of each book offers greater historical complexity. The very youngest perusers of picturebooks, meanwhile, will love the rounded features of Fan Eng’s doll-like characters. Frida Kahlo, for example, looks like a Matryoshka marionette.
