Bicki-Books: Mole 009
by Vitauts Ludens
Age Range: Under_5
Mole (009) written by Vitauts Ļūdēns and illustrated by Dita Pence. This quirky rhyme about a little mole digging his metro line is funny and clever. Who knew that moles had built a metro system underground and that the little mounds of earth in the fields are actually their subway train stations? Pence’s expressive illustrations depict a very industrious mole as he digs his tunnel and ensures his train runs on time!
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.
The first six titles were published in 2019 followed by a further six in January 2020.
