Sayoni BasuSayoni Basu has worked in publishing for more years than she cares to count, at OUP, Penguin, Scholastic and Amar Chitra Katha. She is currently director and primary platypus, at Duckbill, a publishing house for children and young adults.

Sayoni believes that books, especially children’s books, should only be about reading pleasure and not have any didactic intent whatsoever. She is venturing a cautious toe in the unknown waters of digital publishing, and hopes to be swimming well soon.
