Bubbly Books is a small children's publishing company. We create entertaining and fun books that children can't help but love to read.

We hope that our books will open the door to the world of fiction, instill a passion for reading at an early age, and encourage children to let their imaginations soar.

Most of our books are set in Singapore, or have a strong Asian flavour, tapping into the deep cultural traditions of the region. We believe that even the simplest stories can bridge cultural gaps, and help us see those different from us in a btetter light.
