Puffin Virtual Visits

Beam a real-life author or illustrator into your classroom with a Puffin Virtual Visit.

Looking to bring some bookish magic to your class and inspire your pupils with tales of adventure, mystery, and magic? Well then, you’ve come to the right place. Schools across the country have been joining in Puffin Virtual Visits from real-life authors and illustrators!

Taking place over Zoom, each 45-minute webinar session will include a live presentation by an author giving pupils a behind-the-scenes look at their books, characters, and writing process. Pupils will also be treated to an activity and the chance to have their questions answered – Live! Before the event, download the resource pack with ideas for each of the books and check out the free chapter samples.

Pupils can send in their questions and school shout-outs by emailing [email protected] with the author’s name in the subject line.

Puffin Virtual Visits are the perfect opportunity to encourage reading for pleasure in your school, introduce new books and authors, and inspire a love of reading. Taking part will support pupils’ literacy, creative writing and encourage the habit of reading widely and often.
