Mr. Popper's Penguins

Mr. Popper's Penguins

by Richard & Florence Atwater, Jim Madsen (Illustrator)
Mass market paperback, 139 pages
Price: $8.99

It was hard enough for Mr. Popper to support himself, Mrs. Popper, Bill and Janie Popper. The addition of twelve penguins (sent by an antarctic explorer) to the family made it impossible to make both 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.
