Bicki-Books: Potato Potato 008
by Jitauts Ludens
Age Range: Under_5
Potato Potato (008) written by Vitauts Ļūdēns and illustrated by Ieva Jurjāne. Here is an amusing nursery rhyme about potatoes with the text written in the shape of a long strip of potato peel that flows throughout Jurjāne’s descriptive illustrations.
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.
