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.
