Bicki-Books: The Door Wizard 004
by Peters Bruveris
Age Range: Under_5
The Door Wizard (004), written by Pēters Brūveris and illustrated by Paulis Liepa. “One day a Wizard cast a spell on a Door, which means this door will shut no more.” This is the opening rhyme to The Door Wizard where the outside comes in and the inside goes out. Brūveris’ story provides a dilemma, especially when the wizard himself comes through the door. What should the child do “Go or Stay? Run or Block his Way? Liepa’s colourful geometric illustrations bring this quirky tale to life.
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.
