Bahiya does not want to be striped like all the other zebras in the Serengeti. She wants to stand out and be the most special little zebra in the whole of Africa! Determined to reach this goal, Bahiya and her friend come up with a creative idea for a unique new look. The result ... is not what she expected!
Will Bahiya realise how special she is, even with her stripes?
African Bureau Stories is a children's publishing house that produces delightful children's books by African writers and illustrators. Our stories are fun, relatable and entertaining. We make our books with a team of talented African writers and illustrators who pour a lot of heart into each of our titles. From Ghana, to Tanzania to South Africa, we bring contemporary stories from across the African continent. Our goal is to delight our readers and take them on a journey into a world of stories too good to forget.
Our physical location is in Accra, Ghana, and from here we spread our tentacles across the entire African continent and the world to find and publish the very best African stories for children everywhere. Our sister organization, Golden Baobab, is a literary non profit organization that discovers, nurtures and celebrates talented African writers and illustrators of children’s stories.
At African Bureau Stories we believe it is possible to build a profitable business while doing good. We pursue this mission by building partnerships with individuals and companies who believe, like us, that giving a child the gift of reading is handing the child a life-changing tool. Every child deserves this gift.
We are deeply committed to the battle against childhood illiteracy in Africa. We believe in the power of storybooks to show children around the world the fullness and beauty of different cultures.
Our books are available in Ghana at the following retail outlets
