Celebrate the Puffin Post's 45th Birthday

The cherished tome throws a birthday bash - and you're invited!

For 45 years literary stalwart, Puffin, has been producing the much-loved Puffin Post children’s magazine. Over the years, members have been able to meet their favourite authors, attend special exhibitions and, via subscription, are sent six magazines and can choose up to six Puffin published books per year. Members, known as Pufflings or Puffineers depending on their age, are encouraged to send in letters, artwork and stories to be featured in the magazine and a team of scrutinising children signs off every issue.

The changing face of the magazine has successfully held thousands of children interested in reading and attending literary events. This year’s Puffin Post Family Day will be held at the Radisson Blu Edwardian in Guildford as part of Guildford Book Festival on October 20, and in light of the special day, will be open to non-members too.

Will you be popping along to the Puffin Post's 45th Birthday Party? Young guests will be granted an audience with illustrator Emma Dodd who will bring her stories to life with live drawing, enjoy stortelling with Mr Gum author Andy Stanton and then take tea with the guest of honour; Puffin himself.
