VIDYA MANI

Vidya Mani is a children’s writer and editor, who wears many hats. She runs a content and design studio called Melting Pot that creates children’s books and magazines for publishers and NGOs. She is one of the founder-members of Funky Rainbow (www.funkyrainbow.com), a travelling bookshop and book consultancy that is committed to bringing books and children together in exciting and innovative ways. She was the managing editor of the children’s book review site, Goodbooks (www.goodbooks.in), and helped institute The Hindu Young World-Goodbooks Awards, the first in India to recognize different genres in children’s publishing and to reward authors and illustrators for their invaluable contribution.

Vidya’s books for children include India A to Z: An Alphabetical Tour of Incredible India (Penguin), The Quirquincho and the Fox (Pratham), Lazy Rafael and The Missing Leg (Pages for Ages). She believes that reading is like biting into an eclair – it shows you there’s a whole world of chocolate out there waiting to be eaten!
