Bicki-Books: I Want a Little Puppy Dog 012
by Ilmars Slapins
Age Range: Under_5
I Want a Puppy Dog (012) written by Ilmārs Šlāpins and illustrated by Dārta Stafecka this is a yearning rhyme of a man who desperately wants a puppy and will stop at nothing to get it! Šlāpins’ beautiful embroidery illustrations are so unusual and full of detail. The longing of the man for a canine companion comes across so well in their expressiveness.
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.
