2016 Show information

Last year the Puffin Virtually Live Survey asked what you really thought about the show. Based on your feedback we’re making a few changes so it’ll be even better! It will now be recorded in advance, like many TV programmes, but will still be broadcast at a specific time so you can watch along with many schools around the world. We hope this will improve your school’s viewing experience and give authors time to answer more questions from your students.

On show day, make sure you tune in to find out if your question was answered and tweet
@penguinSchools to see your school’s name on screen!
