MANGOES AND MISCHIEF
Moidooty and Malu are on their Summer break. They play every day: rolling marbles, flying kites, fishing . . .
One day, Moidooty doesn’t want to play anymore because he isn’t able to think of anything else besides mangoes. His friend Malu picks up a pebble, aims for the juiciest mango, and throws it. But it hits Maangasura, a mango-loving monster, instead!
Maangasura curses Moidooty that every time he opens his mouth to speak, little mangoes will come tumbling out. What will Malu and Moidooty do now?
Trivia: This book was originally written for Pratham Books’ Storyweaver platform. It became so popular that it was re-illustrated! The author, Sreedevi, has toured many cities and schools narrating the story to thousands of children.
Ms Moochie Books is an independent publishing house. They publish contemporary Indian books for children. What sets them apart is their unique story → book process. All new stories are taken to classrooms by storytellers. Feedback from the children is passed on to the author. She makes changes. This loop is iterated till the children give the story an emphatic thumbs up, after which the book is made. This allows them to actively involve the reader, i.e the child, in the making of the book.
