Bicki-Books: Bicki Bucki 001
by Janis Baltvilks
Age Range: Under_5
Bicki Bucki (001) is an unusual modern nursery rhyme by Janis Baltvilks about the friendship between a small boy and a dinosaur who gets its tail stuck under a stone. How will the young hero help his friend out of his predicament? The comical illustrations by Reinis Petersons use simple, block colour of predominantly orange and blue which are rich and vibrant. A lovely funny tale of perseverance and helping others.
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.
