None of this rang any bells with me, so I had to go look at a few of my old
Puffins.  I've my old copy of Wizard of Earthsea, and a new Puffin copy and
both are in Linotype Pilgrim.  Still haven't come across the Juliana yet to
compare, but I didn't check all the Narnia ones yet - the ones I looked at
were Garamond.
