Penguin Books India launches new web portal for young readers

State-of-the-art in functionality with child-friendly navigation and many fun activities, books and authors  Launch contest: ‘Win Your Library’ Lucky-Draw for kids!

The Penguin ‘Young Readers’ website is a refreshing, cool and engaging platform for the young mind.  For those who know what they are looking for, the site presents all Penguin Young Reader titles in a bright and easy way, listing their entire Children’s imprints like Puffin, Ladybird, Inked, DK etc. And for those who come searching for books, they can find them by category, age, author, bestselling books, and even by their favourite characters!

It is a specially designed site to create wonder, curiosity and a love of reading in our young readers.  A lot of emphasis has been put on designing the navigation of this site in a fun way with sections such as “The Coolest Reads”, “New Books in Town”, Fun Stuff, Gifting etc.

There is a special section on “Favourite Character” where our young reader can search and engage with books and information on their favourite characters such as Tintin, Rusty, Feluda etc. They can also download custom-designed wallpapers for their favourite characters.

There are interactive pages like ‘Write to your Favourite Author’ where a young reader has the opportunity of connecting and interacting with the authors of the books they are reading. There is also the page: ‘Young Readers send your Story,’ for the aspiring young writers to hone and use their writing-skills and showcase them to Penguin publishers and editors.

It is a fabulous place for not just the young readers themselves but also parents, teachers and all who have a love for children’s books. Our whole idea and endeavor has been to present our books on an engaging, fun and relatable platform for the evolving and growing Young Reader.

‘Win Your Library’ Contest
We launch also, with a fun lucky-draw contest called ‘Win your Library’, where we invite the young readers to register with us and tell us their favourite ten books.  Based on their selection of ten, we add another ten and one lucky winner gets a ‘library’ of twenty books!

Our endeavor here is to engage the young reader and inculcate a love for reading and books as well as cultivate and direct their seeking minds in a creative direction.

Fifty other winners get books from us and gift vouchers from Hamleys Toy Store and all participants get vouchers from Gini and Jony (apparels).
