How About: These Three From Gecko Press

| No Comments

Gecko Press is a New Zealand publisher specializing in English language versions of books from around the world.

ACHUKA is a great admirer of what they do, and recommends three of the latest Gecko titles.

First off, The Birthday Cake Mystery by The Tjong-Khing, an Indonesian author/illustrator now working in the Netherlands. This is a wordless look-and-find detective story, filled with humorous details and red herrings. Not a word printed anywhere, but bound to evoke lots of questions and conversation.


The Fishing Trip by Beatrice Rodriguez is another wordless book about a seafaring chicken. It's a book that makes good use of its long thin landscape format.


Lastly, The best singer in the world by Ulf Nilsson & Eva Eriksson about someone who is a great showman in front of little brother, but is filled with stagefright when it comes to performing on stage. This one has lots of words (English translation by Julia Marshall) and is infectiously appealing.
