About the Puffin Festival of Big Dreams
Puffin, the world’s biggest children’s publisher, is celebrating its 80th birthday with the Puffin Festival of Big Dreams. The seven-day online festival, in partnership with Waterstones, will launch on the 8th June and will bring together authors and illustrators including Jacqueline Wilson, Robin Stevens, Nick Sharratt, Dapo Adeola, Nathan Bryon and Nadia Shireen, to inspire children to keep on dreaming.
Hosted on Puffin’s YouTube and Facebook Live channels, the festival will feature an all-star line up of authors, illustrators, and special guests who will be running writing masterclasses, draw-alongs and setting creative challenges to keep children's imaginations dreaming long after screen-time is over. Every weekday families will be able to enjoy two new videos from Puffin’s star-studded line-up, which will culminate in a live, interactive extravaganza at the weekend. Each event will be themed around dreams, be they bold, brave or wild, and the events will take storytime to the next level.
Authors and illustrators taking part include: Jacqueline Wilson (former Children’s Laureate), Robin Stevens (Murder Most Unladylike), Nathan Bryon & Dapo Adeola (Look Up!) Carrie Hope Fletcher (Into the Spotlight), Sam Copeland (Charlie Changes into a Chicken), Nadia Shireen (Bumblebear) Stuart Heritage and Nicola Slater (Jonathan’s Magic Pony), Jamie Littler (Frostheart), Rashmi Sirdeshpande (How to be Extraordinary), Yassmin Abdel-Magied (My Name is Layla) and will be hosted by former Blue Peter presenter Radzi Chinyanganya. The full line-up and programme will be announced shortly.
Dream big with Puffin.
