Kookaburra Books Inc. is an idependently run publishing company founded by brothers, Robert & Matthew Booras. The company was started in 2016 with the goal of fostering quality entertainment for children in the form of literature & visual arts.

Although the company name is derived from a native Australian bird, the brothers (born and raised in Brooklyn), chose Kookaburra Books as their company name & logo after Matthew's wife learned about the bird on a trip to Australia, only to return home and constantly refer to her in-laws as, "The Cuckoo Booras-es."
