Recommended by Waleska Santiago

"Every story starts somewhere." And this story starts with shocking pink endpapers, one of the colors "Schap" popularized (along with ice blue). Born in Rome to parents and an older sister who seem indifferent and think Elsa is ugly, Elsa develops a love for fashion and beauty (though she never learns to sew). Traveling from Italy to England to Paris to New York and back to Paris, Elsa never gives up on her dream, and eventually opens her first shop at the age of 37.

"To be an artist is to dream big and risk failure."

Back matter includes a note from the author and illustrator, a photo of Elsa, examples of things she made and other artists she was friends with. End notes, source notes, further reading.

It is because of books like these that I still read picture books as an adult. Lovely illustrations, and very cute story.
