Puffin marks 70 years of children's publishing by announcing 70 of their best ever books, from Charlie and the Chocolate Factory to The Worst Witch, via Lauren Child and Polly Borland's The Princess and the Pea, which is celebrated under the 'Best Sugar and Spice' category.

The showcase of Puffin books is part of a year of birthday celebrations organised by the publisher. Bookshops and libraries have been given packs to host Puffin parties and a series of £3.99 "Pocket Money Puffins" have already proved very popular!
