Puffin Story Books (PS) is a wonderful series of books for children. It began in December 1941 with the launch of PS1 Worzel Gummidge by Barbara Euphan Todd. The covers of the first books produced were in the standard Penguin format, with red covers (red-white-red), with the 'quartic' panel at the top and a 'Puffin' logo at the bottom. The centre panel contained a small vignette.

From 1944, Puffin book covers were illustrated - the first being PS9 The Puffin Puzzle Book

The series was edited by Eleanor Graham who strove to publish "the best of the new classics of the new generation". The series rapidly became recognised as a hallmark of good quality childrens books. After 20 years as series editor, Eleanor Graham was suceeded by Kaye Webb in 1961.
