Comment: I love animals, I love book about animals, I love children's books about animals. I was sure that I was going to like this. We follow the life of Mr. Popper, who has a fascination for the arctic and penguins. When a penguin is send to him, the journey begins. And that one penguin is only the beginning, because there are more to follow. Kids dig this stuff, it's hilarious and fun. A very quick read for me. I liked it too, but it's not a books I will remember forever and it's also not a book that will be in the children's hearts for the rest of their lives. But I think this book can make kids read, that are normally not interested in reading. It's a fun book, with a lot of laughs, likeable characters and it's very enjoyable.
