Bicki-Books: Emil 011
by Inga Gaile
Age Range: Under_5
Emil (011) written by Inga Gaile and illustrated by Anna Zvaigzne, this is a love poem to Emil who perhaps doesn’t share the sentiment – “I want to play bride and groom. Emil, Emil Okay, let’s play …” “ Let’s play jailhouse wedding day.” Zvaigzne’s child-like four-colour illustrations are busy adding much more detail to 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.
The first six titles were published in 2019 followed by a further six in January 2020.
