Puffin Website Relaunch

| No Comments

Puffin Books has relaunched its website, www.puffin.co.uk.

Anna Rafferty, Online Marketing Director for Penguin, says, 'Puffin was the first children's publisher to launch its own website in 1997, leading the way in a new era of technology. The 'worldwide web' has changed dramatically since the late 90s however and as a publisher always at the forefront of digital media (Penguin was the first publisher to launch a teen online book community, spinebreakers.co.uk in 2007) we want puffin.co.uk to be the most dynamic and inviting website that young internet explorers expect today.'

Designed for children, but with plenty to offer an adult visitor as well, Puffin's brand new website now offers:
� A character gallery on the homepage linking through to dedicated websites where visitors can enter the world of their favourite book character from Artemis Fowl to Angelina Ballerina
� A faceted search facility which allows visitors to search by format, age range, subject or category eg classics or picture books
� A dedicated section for authors and illustrators featuring exclusive interviews, biographies, extracts and photographs
� The official Puffin blog. News and views from the people behind the scenes at Puffin, from the copyeditor to the sales rep. Also to feature guest authors from time to time
� Podcasts free to download including recordings from such children's book luminaries as Quentin Blake, Eoin Colfer, Meg Rosoff, Darren Shan, Louise Rennison and Jonathan Stroud
� The Puffin playground - ecards, quizzes, competition and games
� A 'grown ups' zone where teachers can find classroom activities, recommended reading lists and useful web links and where parents can get invaluable advice on all matters regarding books and reading direct from the experts
