Penguin Random House will also be publishing a range of books to complement the series.

With its classic picture book style, this original series feels like a property that is immediately familiar. We look forward to introducing this charming property to retailers and licensees at BLE.”

Laura Campbell, editorial director at Dog Ears, added: “We’re excited to be working with Hoho. It has a great understanding of our brand and big plans for the global licensing. We look forward to seeing our Puffins flying off the shelves.”
