Puffin Picture Books

It’s strange to think that a children’s book about tank warfare started an eighty-year empire, but the success of the early Picture books led to the entire Puffin catalog.

Of special note here is PP116, which was not issued. Paxton Chadwick had nearly completed the book at the time of his untimely death. Thirty years later, the Penguin Collectors Society arranged for its completion and publication, capping off the series at long last.
