Stunningly illustrated picture books on a range of important themes such as kindness, gender, and environment protection, along with a collection of audiobooks that are narrated by some of India’s biggest personalities (Rahul Dravid, Sanjay Dutt, Girish Karnad, and Javed Jaffrey to name a few), and set to professionally performed music inspired by Indian classical ragas for children aged 7 to 9. There are 26 books in this collection.

Karadi Tales picture books are written by acclaimed authors and illustrators, and have won several Indian and international awards – The Hindu Young World Goodbooks Awards, a NAPPA (National Association of Parenting Publications of America) Award, Comic Con (India) Awards, the South Asian Book Award, the Jarul Children’s Choice Award, and more. This collection contains 71 beautifully illustrated picture books produced at the highest quality.

Our complete collection has it all: picture books with intricate illustrations; audiobooks (with USB drives) narrated by legends from the fields of theatre and cinema; touch and feel books with braille letters; biographies and poetry collections for older readers; board books for infants with thick, spill-proof pages; heart-warming chapter books that cover the experiences of disenfranchised people from rural India. It has everything your library needs, and then some!

The PARI series (for ages 10 to 15) uses real stories of rural India, disenfranchised people and communities, and the unique challenges they overcome every day. They are stories of triumph, and an attempt to give these voices a platform, as well as address the serious dearth of children’s books that are set in non-urban locations.

Since its inception in 1996, Karadi Tales has grown to become one of India’s leading children’s publishers. The Karadi Tales catalogue consists of nearly 150 high-quality books including picture books, audiobooks and tactile books. With important themes such as gender equality, environment conservation, bullying prevention, kindness, adoption, and disability, apart from general interest stories featuring humour, verse, and retellings of folktales, these stories don’t just entertain and enlighten – they stay with the child forever.

Over the past two decades, Karadi Tales has racked up countless national and international awards and accolades, such as The Hindu Young World Good Books Awards, the Jarul Book Award, the Dr Toy Award, the NAPPA Award, the South Asia Book Award, and the Comic Con (India) Award. Karadi Tales has also featured on prestigious lists such as the New York Public Library’s Best Children’s Books list, the White Ravens Catalogue, the Amelia Bloomer list, the USBBY list, the International Board on Books for Young People, and the Dolly Parton Imagination Library program.

Through the Dreaming Fingers imprint, Karadi Tales was the first publisher to bring the beloved Eric Carle book ‘The Very Hungry Caterpillar’ to India – this tactile book with die-cut pages, specially prepared materials and braille letters is also suitable for visually impaired children. Karadi Tales audiobooks are widely known for their professionally performed music, and narration by eminent personalities such as Naseeruddin Shah, Girish Karnad, Rahul Dravid, Soha Ali Khan, Javed Jaafrey, Saeed Jaafrey, R Madhavan, and Vidya Balan. The hand-drawn illustrations in Karadi Tales books feature stunning and varied artistic styles such as Gond, Warli, watercolours, collages, acrylic, Madhubani, and more. With painstaking detail paid to production quality, every Karadi Tales title is as much a children’s book as it is a work of art.
