About Puffin

Puffin is over 70 years old. Sounds ancient, doesn't it? But Puffin has never been so lively. Always on the lookout for the next big idea. Which is how it began all those years ago.

Penguin Books was a big idea from the mind of a man called Allen Lane, who in 1935 invented the quality paperback and changed the world. And from great Penguins, great Puffins grew, changing the face of children's books for ever.

Puffin was hatched in 1939 and the first Puffin story book featured a man with broomstick arms called Worzel Gummidge. And the most famous brand in children's publishing waddled proudly into the 21st century with the best books, authors and ideas around. From Artemis Fowl to Young Bond, Michelle Paver to Wimpy Kid, no matter what your age or what you're into, there's a Puffin book for everyone. The possibilities are endless, but one thing is for sure: whether it's a picture book or a paperback, a sticker book or a hardback, if it's got that little puffin on it, it's bound to be good.
