IN LIGHT OF THE TRAGEDY THAT HAS STRUCK NEPAL AND THE PEOPLE OF THE HIMALAYA, Pat and Baiba Morrow (and Bungalo Books) have decided to make Heart of the Himalaya, their multimedia portrait of the Himalaya people, free to everyone for a month. We hope that our readers will donate $10 or more to one of the charities involved in the rescue effort. Please visit this link for more information. (Frank B. Edwards, Publisher)
Welcome to the new incarnation of Bungalo Books. After 26 years publishing printed books, Bungalo made the switch to ebooks in 2012 — more specifically multi-touch ebooks for Apple’s iPad. (They also work on Macs running OS 10.9 Maverick.) We think it’s the ideal medium for both illustrated non-fiction titles for adults and children’s picture books.

Discover how non-profit literacy agencies, schools and libraries can buy print copies of Bungalo Books/Pokeweed picture books for just $2 each.
Check out Everest: High Expectations, a richly illustrated adventure story of two classic expeditions on the world’s highest mountain.
With the recent release of Popchuck’s Ghost, a juvenile novel by kids’ author Paul Toffanello, Bungalo Books has its first non-illustrated ebook available from both Amazon and iTunes. While our illustrated books are only available for reading on iPads, this novel can be read on iPhones, iPads, computers and, of course, Amazon’s Kindles. And yes, there will be more to come… next up are ebook versions of Bug and Frogger, the first juvenile novels that we printed several years ago.
