Puff, the world’s greatest puffin, is throwing a Beakday party and everybody’s invited. But someone’s feeling a little shellfish… 

Based on the 1932 poem of the same name by Florence Page Jaques, There Once Was A Puffin is a coming-of-age tale about sharing, friendship and generosity. 


There Once Was A Puffin has been created with the generous support of the Queensland Government through Arts Queensland.
