It was an afternoon in late September. In the pleasant city of Stillwater, Mr. Popper, the house painter, was going home from work. (from the first line)
Mr. Popper dreams about leaving his boring life and going on an adventure to the Antarctic. When the legendary Admiral Drake sends him a live penguin in response to his letter, he is thrilled. Very soon, he also receives a female companion for his penguin and they have 10 children. But Mr. Popper has enough trouble supporting his human family, and so he has the idea to take his penguins to the stage. Soon, Mr. Popper is up to his ears in adventure as he tries to manage 12 performing penguins and the trouble they inevitably get into.
Mr. Popper''s Penguins remains a classic, read and remembered by generations of loyal fans. Now, 70 years after its publication, it will be given a fresh new voice as an audiobook to attract a new generation of listeners.
Annotation:
Mr. Popper is a house painter who lives in a small American town with his wife and two children. It has always been Mr. Popper's dream to travel to Antarctica and see real live penguins, so when he hears that an explorer named Admiral Drake is going on an Antarctic expedition, Mr. Popper writes him a letter. Admiral Drake responds by sending Mr. Popper his very own penguin. As the story progresses, Mr. Popper soon has a family of 10 penguins. What will he do with these unusual pets? Go into show business, of course! Illustrated with b&w drawings.
