Puffin is a children’s book imprint of Penguin Random House, one of the largest publishing companies in the world. Puffin was founded in the UK in 1940 by Kaye Webb, and it has since become one of the most recognizable names in children’s publishing. The imprint is known for publishing a wide range of books for children of all ages, including picture books, chapter books, middle grade novels, and young adult fiction.
Puffin has published many beloved and award-winning books, including classics like “The Very Hungry Caterpillar” by Eric Carle, “Charlotte’s Web” by E.B.
