Welcome to The Puffin Book Club 2024!

Our Puffin Book Club hub has been home to some of the very best stories for our young readers since 2019, so there’s plenty of awesome books to read on our club hub bookshelf!

From adventurous cats to detective dogs, from moose pilots to an artist goose, to counting Pukeko and singing Kiwi. You can discover the universe or explore NZ, learn about emotions or the Atua: Maori Gods.

You’ll find many loveable characters, go on magical adventures and explore exciting worlds, in our Puffin Books of the Month, written to spark a lifelong love of reading in our little ones.

Join us and remember our club motto, there’s always time for stories!
