This is a post from our marketing intern, Maryann Yin:
Everyone at the Lee & Low office has become quite enamored with pufflings since the release of our spring title, Puffling Patrol. Without this book, we probably never would have learned about these adorable baby birds because they don’t really appear alongside the pigeons of New York City. In the last five years, the puffin population on the Westman Islands in Iceland has decreased sharply due to environmental changes and global warming. Inspired by the child activists that star in the book and with Earth Day approaching, we started wondering about what we can do to ensure that puffins continue to be part of our world ecosystem.
