The children’s book publishing industry in India today appears to be buzzing, considering the array of children’s books that have been produced in the post-liberalisation period, especially in the English language. Are these books different from the ones produced in earlier decades, and if so, in what ways? What has been the trajectory of this journey, what are its key accomplishments and what are the challenges? How closely do they reflect the diverse realities of Indian children and their experiences? Have we developed distinctive voices, or are we still struggling to find them? These, and other such questions, are addressed in the essays written by pioneers and practitioners of children’s literature in India. They include publishers, authors, illustrators, editors, translators, librarians and educators. Deliberately eschewing jargon and technical language, the essays speak directly to anybody interested in the world of children’s literature. Peppered with examples and citations of published works, Children’s Books: An Indian Story springboards a thought-provoking platform for debate and discussion in a critical, creative space.
