Meet Puffin, a clever architect who always creates the perfect home for her clients.  But her newest clients are VERY hard to please!

Puffin is an architect who always exceeds her clients’ expectations, that is, until she takes on the toughest clients ever – her own pufflings!

Puffin takes her tricky new clients on an inspirational tour of her builds.  Together they visit all kinds of cleverly designed spaces - Otter's floating home, Pig's toolshed on wheels, Painter Goose's light-filled studio and Platypus's cosy underground bakehouse.

The pufflings are unimpressed.

Her clients really are a challenge!  Will Puffin come up with a puffling-perfect home design?

This gorgeous story, with endearing animal characters, intriguing house designs, ingenious mechanisms and storage solutions to pore over on every page, will spark a brand new generation of architects, engineers and interior designers!
