Puffin (no, I’m not out of breath)

Anyone else spot the new puffin list announcements over on Book Brunch yesterday? Francesca Dow, from Puffin, pinned down the uncertainity about what is to come - “To be honest, I don’t really know what 2009 will be about.”

All that said… Puffin are presenting a huge list of interesting books including Charlie Higson’s Fourteen (September) and two new Young Bond books By Royal Command (June), and The Young Bond Dossier (November).

Then there is, in order of release, Jason Bradbury’s Dot Robot (February), Diary of a Wimpy Kid, Rodney Rulez (February), Morris Gleitzman’s Then (February), Anna Perera’s Guantanamo Boy (February), Adam Stower’s and Jeanne Willis Bottoms Up! (March), Sarwat Chadda Devil’s Kiss (May), Suzanne M LaFleur’s Love, Aubrey (June), Kevin Brooks’ Killing God (July), Ross Kemp’s Gang Lands (August), Jay Asher’sThirteen Reasons Why (August), Meg Rosoff’s The Bride’s Farewell (September); Lauren Child’s Who Wants To Be a Poodle? I Don’t (September), Jill Murphy’s Dear Hound (October), Nick Butterworth’s Trixie (October), Eoin Colfer’s And Another Thing (October) and a 40th anniversary of The Very Hungry Caterpillar.

Giddy at the thought of it.

  • has The Hitch-Hiker’s Guide been classed as a children’s book now? Sure, everyone knows Eoin for Artemis Fowl, but it seems strange to release that as a Puffin book?

    There are lots of books here though eh?!

  • All the PR stuff I’ve seen has it listed as a penguin release - this is the first I’ve heard of it going under Puffin. Not too sure about Ross Kemp’s book either.

    Off to check it out now…
