Bookaroo, launched in 2008 and organised in different Indian cities, invites speakers from various countries to speak to children to encourage them to read more. The festival holds puppet show sessions, story sessions under a banyan tree and has a doodle wall for children.

The festival also runs an outreach programme called Bookaroo in the City through which book-related activities are conducted in schools across New Delhi.

The current edition of The London Book Fair is being held between 14 and 16 March.
