Bicki-Books: Topsy-Turvy Tasks 003
by Maija Laukmane
Age Range: Under_5
Topsy-Turvy Tasks (003) , written by Maija Laukmane and illustrated by Sabine Moore. Things really are topsy turvy in this book. Lucy goes off to school while her cat Tom chases mice; the dog Rex is also busy chasing sparrows while Daisy the calf drinks from her mother. But then everything changes! Rex goes off to school, Lucy chases mice and Daisy charges after sparrow and so on. Laukmane presents a world where everything is out of place and Moore’s unusual cut-out style illustrations in bold colours are full of energy and humour.
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.
