We are a team of creative individuals who are passionate about My Own Tale. Our goal is to make children’s reading as fun and as engaging as possible. We believe that during a child’s primary years it is important to instill good reading habits that will last a lifetime.

Technology has allowed us to personalize books like never before. Through mass customization we can provide each and every customer a unique book to match the uniqueness of each little one. Our founders’ story is just as unique. Learn a bit more about us and share our passion.

The founders come from two very different parts of the world. Aditya is originally from Bangalore, India and Brian from Chicago, United States. Yet, both are world travelers having lived in various countries throughout the world. They met during their studies in Madrid, Spain and have been friends ever since. Aditya came up with the idea of customized classics for readers, and Brian honed it to personalized fairytales for children. From there, with a lot of hard work and passion, the idea blossomed into My Own Tale.
