    S2, Ep1 Mission Imagination: Tamzin’s World of Magical Makers

    Our first guest of the new series is Tamzin Merchant, author of the brilliant books ‘The Hatmakers and ‘The Mapmakers’. Tamzin transports us to a secret world of magical makers, where ordinary items like hats, musical instruments and maps are given extra special magic! The only problem is that the evil Lord Witloof hates magic and is burning all that he can get his hands on. It’s clear that Tamzin needs the help of our trio to stop him in his tracks and together, they need to find all the ingredients to brew up the perfect storm. Can they stop Lord Witloof in time?!

    S2, Ep2 Katie’s Imaginary School of Fun and Frappuccinos

    S2, Ep2 Katie’s Imaginary School of Fun and Frappuccinos

    This week on Mission Imagination, we are joined by author of the Lottie Brooks series, Katie Kirby! Katie takes our Puffineers to Lottie Brooks’ Imaginary School of Fun and Frappuccinos, and as you can probably tell from the name, this isn’t any old school. Lessons include skateboarding, TikTok dancing and art classes where unicorns are the life models! You can also eat and drink anything you like in the school canteen, so why not try a deliciously frothy fairy dust and carrot frappuccino with extra popping candy? There’s just one rule to follow to keep this school fun; as nicely as they ask, do not feed the unicorns any of your frappuccino…

    This week’s episode is the final one for this series of Mission Imagination. We've been to some amazing worlds and today is no different, as we welcome author Sharna Jackson to the podcast!

Sharna drives our Puffineers to the Old Car Factory, a run-down building that used to be the talk of the town. Our Pufineers have the chance to earn four Copsey badges for completing tasks around the factory, but there’s just one problem…if our Puffineers turn on the factory lights at any point during their tasks, they will alert a terrifying woman: Josie’s mum! If she knows they’re in the factory, our Puffineers will be in a whole world of trouble.

    Bonus Episode: Peter Rabbit Summer Special!

    Welcome back to The Puffin Library of Made-Up Things for a very special episode! This episode will take us on a thrilling adventure with Peter Rabbit in his favourite garden, all inspired by Rachel Bright's book, ‘Peter Rabbit: Head over Tail’. In this episode, Peter has indulged a little too much in delicious vegetables and fruits - so Rachel, Baba, and our adventurous Puffineers Tylan and Darcey don their gardening hats and use one of Peter’s nifty inventions to replant the yummy produce. You won't believe what our motley crew get up to in the process!
