Join Puffin’s birthday celebrations for a chance to win

This competition is now closed

It’s Puffin’s 80th birthday this year, and the best present we can ask for is to see your Puffin books! Whether they’re shiny and new or tattered, beloved copies from your childhood, we want to see them all.

During August, use the hashtag #MyPuffinBook to share a picture of your (or your child’s) favourite Puffin book with a note on where you’re from over on Twitter, Facebook or Instagram (and don’t forget to tag us too)!

Then each week, we’ll be giving away £50 of Puffin books to one lucky winner.

Join in the birthday celebrations and get sharing now!
