Puffinalia for Educators.
Welcome to the 2022 edition of the Puffinalia magazine!
We relaunched this little booklet in 2020 to celebrate 80 years of Puffin and also as an homage to the original 1977 magazine that was sent to Australian Puffin Club members. Since then, Puffin Australia has been committed to providing quality literature to young readers, sharing the magic of stories and helping to make reading fun. In these pages, you’ll find an overview of just some of the books publishing in the first half of 2022 as well as feature interviews with bestselling Australian authors Jacqueline Harvey, Felice Arena and R.A. Spratt.
