It all started with a pink jacket, a key and a scribbled note... When Jama and Ufulu bump into each other near a suspicious-looking house in Yeoville, they don’t realize that this will be the beginning of a friendship full of adventures. A new team is born … and they are ready to find out what is really going on at the mysterious 179 Jabulani Street!
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
