Penguin: The Giant Jumperee

The Challenge:

Penguin Random House tasked Delineo with taking The Giant Jumperee into Amazon’s top ten best-selling children’s books on publication. The picture book is the first collaboration between renowned children’s author, Julia Donaldson, and iconic illustrator, Helen Oxenbury.


A social media campaign that reprised the book’s striking illustrations and rhyming couplets; the six-week social media strategy included taking advantage of the key attributes of the novel, and creating a campaign that grabbed the attention of parents.

Pre-launch ‘teaser’ activity sparked intrigue. Rhyming headlines posed the question: “What’s a Giant Jumperee, can you draw one for me?” to promote a children’s Facebook competition, while the launch activity focussed on paid social, offering a mixture of on-page ads and unpublished (dark ads) directing audiences to purchase.

The campaign generated Twitter and Facebook engagement rates that were well above the sector average.  

We shocked, inspired and encouraged trial of the Roberts Bloomers with 100% recyclable pack, and donated hundreds of competitor’s loaves to a food bank.
