‘We need the literature of other countries to expand our
horizons and stimulate our ideas. Without it, we are not only
diminished, we are starved’

Bicki-Books: Ice Cream 005
by Arnolds Auzins
Age Range: Under_5
Ice Cream (005), written by Arnolds Auziņš and illustrated by Līva Piterāne. The narrator's brother adores ice cream, in fact, he worships it and manages to eat at least a ton. Auziņš’ playful poem is full of humour. It could be a cautionary story for all those sweet lovers who eat too much, but who, perhaps, may not want to end up as a snowman! Piterāne’s watercolour illustrations in soft pastel colours of predominantly pinks and blues create a dream-like snowscape, as well as adding additional humour to compliment the text.
Bicki-Books are a truly delightful collectable series of postcard-sized picture books bringing to life some of Latvia’s best-loved children’s poems and modern nursery rhymes. Curated by Rūta Briede and translated into English by Žanete Vēvere Pasqualini, Uldis Balodis, and Kate Wakeling, each poem has been skilfully matched to a leading contemporary illustrator.
These first six titles were published in 2019 followed by a further six in January 2020.
