Mr Popper's PenguinsW on the roadThe lovable Mr Popper dreams of being an intrepid Antarctic explorer living life among the penguins alongside his hero Admiral Drake So he is shocked one day when the admiral responds to his fan letter by sending him a real live penguin Soon this penguin is joined by another and before long Mr Popper has an ice rink in the basement and a dozen delightful penguins living in his house With barely enough money to feed his family and an increasing demand for raw fish and canned shrimp what can the wonderfully imaginative Mr Popper do but train his penguins and then take the show on t I had never read this silly little book until it was on sale for Kindle and I decided to read it at bedtime with my eight year old son We found its whimsical and bizarre story charming and had a great time with it While the book's central plot ends in an abrupt deus ex machina and I was hoping for a bit of a pleasant epilogue we enjoyed our time with it Looking forward to watching the movie with him which I actually heard wasn't so great Still the turn of the century explorer trope is used wildly in this book but the fun part is that it is a book that never takes itself seriously so it is the perfect short chaptered before bedtime book that is a lot of fun to read as we got snoozy Captivating illustrations throughout
