PICTURE PUFFIN BOOKS




THIS PAGE 'PX' PX1- PX48





Penguin PICTURE PUFFIN Books (PX) was the successor to the earlier series of Penguin Puffin Picture Books (PP) Nos. 1 - 120 being published between December 1940 and May 1965, with Noel Carrington being the editor for nearly the entire series.

The earlier Puffin Picture books were intended to be both entertaining and instructive. Under the general 'Puffin' editorship of Kaye Webb the books reverted to the simpler functionality of being 'illustrated story books'.

The series began in October 1968 with the publication of 'PX1', The Story about Ping by Marjorie Flack, and illustrated by Kurt Weise.
