An Easy Guide to Caring for Your Bonsai Tree
The Little Book of Bonsai is a compact beginner’s guide illustrated with photographs of beautiful trees. I wrote it to help you keep your bonsai healthy, to introduce basic techniques, and to suggest next steps for further study. Barnes & Noble named the book one of the best Home and Garden titles of 2020.

Praise for The Little Book of Bonsai
“We have waited a long time for a concise introductory bonsai book written by an expert, and we finally have it. Dupuich’s book has the earmarks of a classic.”
—Michael Hagedorn, author of Post-Dated: The Schooling of an Irreverent Bonsai Monk
“This well written and beautifully illustrated book covers bonsai care along with authoritative information for creating your own bonsai. Highly recommended for beginners.”
—William N. Valavanis, publisher of International Bonsai magazine and founder of the U.S. National Bonsai Exhibition
“Without the proper guidance and understanding, bonsai can be challenging. The Little Book of Bonsai helps you develop your vision, see nature at its best, and re-create it in a smaller size. With Dupuich as your guide, your bonsai journey can begin!”
—Kathy Shaner, curator of the Bonsai Garden at Lake Merritt in Oakland, California
“Dupuich has the best bonsai blog online, so it’s not surprising that The Little Book of Bonsai is the best book for new bonsai enthusiasts.”
—Boon Manakitivipart, award-winning bonsai artist and teacher
“This book is a great guide for making bonsai basics easier…Marvelously written and photographed…I believe it would serve as an excellent text supplement for any beginner’s class or workshop.”
—George Haas, editor, Golden Statements
The clarity of the writing, the quality of the bonsai pictured (both the trees and the photos), the easy to follow instructions, and the overall quality of the production all come together to create a book any beginning enthusiast, or really any enthusiast should have in their bonsai library.
—Wayne Schoech, editor, Bonsai Bark blog
The Little Book of Bonsai authored by Jonas Dupuich is a well written, beautifully illustrated introductory book on the development of bonsai. In fact, I wish that I had this book on my shelf when I first jumped into growing trees many years ago.
