What are Indian children's readings According to a study prepared by Kanishka Gupta, a literary agent and publishing analyst, and published on Friday at a pre-event for authors on the eve of the Neev Literature Festival, which showcases childrens books about Indian life.The backlist titles of best-selling Indian and foreign authors are among the literature on the backlist.This weekend, the literary festival is scheduled to begin.According to the report, the Indian children's market is being influenced by a backlist.

Sudha Murtys Grandmas Bag of Stories (2012) was the highest-selling book in 2021, selling 97,000 copies for Rs 18.4 million.According to the news, JK Rowling's Harry Potter and the Philosophers Stone and Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets were among her best-selling books.According to the study commissioned by Neev Academy, independent publishers saw a rise in demand for backlist titles during the pandemic.According to the survey, My First Book of Patterns Pencil Control and My First Library were the second and third highest selling children's books in India.

Pencil Control began selling 60,000 copies a year, with My First Library, 1l lakh, selling three years ago.According to the survey, Sudha Murty, Jeff Kinney, Geronimo Stilton, JK Rowling, and Ruskin Bond were the top childrens book authors in 2022.According to the study, international authors are the only ones in India with decent sales numbers when it comes to young-adult fiction.Queen of Ice, Queen of Space, and Queen of Fire, a series by Devika Rangachari, and Paro Anand's No Guns at My Sons Funeral are the only exceptions.

The survey finds that audiobooks and e-books have also failed to gain traction as parents prefer physical books.Given the limited appeal of the format, Ruskin Bond and Sudha Murty's eBooks are doing really well on the market, said Gupta.
