Greenbooks is one of the last entrants to the field of publishing in Kerala. By the time the major part of the intellectual property was held by the existing publishers and hence required a different approach to the selection of products. Greenbooks started with world classics and then moved to a more traditional market by creating new products, Suvarnakathakal (Golden stories), PriyaKavithakal (Most loved poems), and Biographies of outstanding persons and Children Literature. Further we have started promoting new writers with talent by publishing their first works. Many contemporary outstanding authors had their beginning with Green Books.
