Pokeweed Press (and Bungalo Books) have been creating books for kids since 1986 and now you can buy them directly from us.
Mortimer Mooner Stopped Taking a Bath was the first kids book written by Frank B. Edwards (who was a journalist -turned-book-editor at the time). His friend John Bianchi illustrated it and three months later they had a bestseller on their hands. Check it out here.
John Bianchi was a magazine illustrator and cartoonist before he started creating kids books. The Pokeweed Public School series (4 books and 1 anthology) became one of his most successful projects. Check out Snowed In here.
Frank and John had produced more than 20 picture books together when they decided to create a nine-book series for kids who were just learning to read. Downtown Lost & Found was the very first one. Check it out here.
