Product Description

It was hard enough for Mr. Popper to support himself, Mrs. Popper, Bill, and Janie Popper. The addition of 12 penguins to the family made it impossible to make ends meet. Then Mr. Popper had a splendid idea--the talented penguins would be a sensation on the stage. And so they were.... A classic of American humor, this story of a gentle house painter and his high-stepping penguins has delighted children for generations. Recommended for ages 7 to 12. A 1939 Newbery Honor book.

    My kids and I love this book. It's one of the only ones that keeps everyone from ages 5 to 12 entertained. We love the stout little Captain Cook and his "Ork!"'s. All around a great, funny little story.
