Book Summary

House painter Mr. Popper receives an unexpected gift, and before he knows it, his house is home to a charming (but expensive) waddle of penguins. Desperate to find a way to make ends meet, Mr. Popper takes the tuxedoed birds on the road as "Popper's Performing Penguins." The Atwaters' comical tale is illustrated by Robert Lawson.
