The Door Wizard is a modern nursery rhyme. It’s part of a collectible series of six new classics by Latvian authors, translated into English for the first time. This tale by Pēters Brūveris is about the radical changes that happen when a wizard makes it impossible for a door to close. The outside comes in and the inside goes out. But what’s a kid to do, caught in the middle of it all? The story is brought to life with colourful geometric illustrations of home life and the natural world by Paulis Liepa.
Translated from the Latvian by Žanete Vēvere Pasqualini and Kate Wakeling.
