Imagine what might happen if book characters could talk back to their authors. Can characters from other picture books help Puffin escape from the story line?

Everyone’s favorite puffin is back, and guess what—he’s still ANGRY!

  • When Puffin is offered a muffin, he realizes that he's the subject of another picture book and the target of a rhyming scheme gone wrong.
  • His emotions take over and chaos ensues as he tries to escape the story line.
  • Luckily, Puffin knows just where to turn for help.
  • See what happens when characters from other picture books come to Puffin's rescue.

Timothy Young fans will have fun spotting characters and scenes from his previously published books, as well as references to other children's classics. Will Puffin get lost in the fantasy worlds, or will he find his way out?

MEDIA REVIEWS

This is a hilarious and surprising story about a moody little puffin who encounters a lot of unpleasant and irritating situations in "his" book. Yes, he realizes we are reading about him and he is not happy about it! Puffin wishes we would just focus our attention on penguins and stop asking him to eat silly things just because they rhyme with his name. This would be a fun fiction and non-fiction book lesson and who knows, maybe this little Puffin wouldn't mind that pairing! (Ages 5-6) - Midwest Book Review, Children's Bookwatch

If You Give the Puffin a Muffin is funny, witty, and just plain smart.  The visual jokes make the book, and the curmudgeonly Puffin is too much fun to read and follow. The endpapers – naturally, all different types of muffins – let readers in on the joke early on. This one’s a good storytime book, and offers a fun chance to have readers spot characters and moments they recognize from other books. A fun add! - Rosemary Kiladitis, Mom Read It

Little Puffin’s patience is again being tested in this rambunctious follow-up picture book to The Angry Little Puffin by Timothy Young. Kids are going to giggle and chortle all the way through, If You Give the Puffin a Muffin. On par with Young’s previous picture books, it is fun and clever with references to the author’s other titles, as well as other children’s classics. The adults in the room will grin when they spy the book Puffin is holding in the first few pages: So Long, a Thanks for All the Fish by Douglas Adams. This reviewer won’t give away the rest of the punny book titles, but readers beware—it may be a challenge to name them all! - New York Journal of Books

With it’s fantastic illustrations and a main character full of personality and opinions, kids will love If You Give the Puffin a Muffin. It is sure to be a new favorite! - iHeartLiteracy

I adore Timothy Young's books. I think we have the same sense of humour. His books are witty and full of emotion, humour and most of all.... fun.  The illustrations are crisp, clear and a perfect marriage to the storyline.  I highly recommend this book and all his other ones too.  They are reading treats. - Storywraps (5-star review)
