Is there a quick and cheap template to make a simple but polished e-picturebook that I can offer as a free download / giveaway with a CD product?

I’m looking for an e-picturebook template or format that works nicely with photographs. I want to plug in my own graphics and text into a ready-made format.
I need cross-compatibility for both Android and I-phones / I-pad / platforms. (I'm half-expecting you to tell me there is no such product.)
I’m looking for something simple, WYSIWYG, bulletproof and not glitchy.
I would like to offer the e-picture-book ( an e-book format with both color pictures and text) as a give-away with another product (an enhanced CD).
Ideally it would have some page-turning and other e-book functionality. In other words -- some nice e-book 'bells and whistles' Not possible? Simple and functional is good too. It’s about the content anyway.
What is the most rudimentary e-book format for this sort of e-book? What are my choices?
I don't have a budget for big upfront (or virtually any) production costs. I would like to plug in my own photos and text into a ready-made 'tried and proven' e-picturebook format.
I seem to recall from some time ago that there were e-books formatted as PDF's. Are there templates in the PDF format that in your experience, are good products that work cross-platform and would work with this concept?
Preference for recommendations for templates / formats / products you've actually had experience with rather than sources found with Google.
I'm planning to either include the e-picturebook on an 'enhanced CD' (embedded as data on disc), or as a free-standing download, retrieved with a supplied link.
