Mr. Popper’s Penguins is a delightful, classic tale about a man named Mr. Popper and how he came to be the leader of twelve Antartic penguins.  Mr. Popper, a painter by trade, struggles to support his wife and two children on a seasonal wage, and this task becomes even more difficult when he receives a penguin in the mail from one of his most admired world explorers.  As the story unfolds, Mr. Popper becomes the caretaker for eleven other penguins and with some creative thinking by Mrs. Popper, they provide a pleasant suprise for the Popper family.
