Ms Moochie Books is an independent publishing house. We publish contemporary Indian books for children. What sets us apart is our 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 us to actively involve the reader, i.e the child, in the making of the book. This stands in contrast to publishers who work in the comfort of their offices, away from the world of children.
