  • The single greatest book of my childhood. (Nerd alert warning)This will explain how much I enjoyed this book. When I first read it, I had inherited a copy from one of my older siblings. They had written their name in the front of it, because our mother has a weird obsession with putting our names on everything that was ours (especially books and clothes). When I was sent home with one of the scholastic book buy handouts (which I was obsessed with), I told my mom that we did not own the book. Yes [...]


  • Why have I shelved this as Hallowe'en read?Page 7, paragraph 4, second sentence: "I have papered all the rooms in the new apartment building on Elm Street"So, I had no problem cracking this open except, except, excepte copy I have been sent, contrary to what I ordered, is this movie tie-in version and there are photos from the film in the middle.The story itself is lovely fun with only a couple of domestic violence against penguin scenes; perfect for reading outloud.



  • I was really looking forward to re-reading Mr. Popper’s Penguins; however, as soon as I started reading this delightful book, I realized that I had never read it as a child. Good thing that I was able to make up for that omission now, in late middle age!House painter Mr. Popper has always longed to be a polar explorer; after a letter to Antarctic explorer Admiral Drake, the admiral ships Mr. Popper a clever Gentoo penguin. The new arrival, dubbed Captain Cook after the English explorer, procee [...]


  • I made all my pets read this to try and make them understand that they need to support ME for a change. It's not a good book for getting the good life, unfortunately. It's cute enough, though. It was cute in a good way, not the "Wild hijinks ensue!" sitcomy problems way. I think birds cause an awful lot of problems. It was good that the book took that problem seriously. I also liked that Mr. Popper was obsessed and got into the spirit of his hobby. I love to know that kind of stuff about people. [...]


  • I have been aware of this book's existence since I was a kid, but somehow I never got around to reading it. The past few months the kids and I have been on an "animal stories" kick for our bedtime reading, but of course we like funny animal books, not dead dogs and horses, so I turned to this. What a little gem! I honestly didn't know what this book was about, except for what you can glean from the title (there's a guy, named Mr. Popper, he has penguins). The story of how he gets the penguins, a [...]


  • Now I never did read Richard and Florence Atwater's Newbery Honour winning novel Mr. Popper's Penguins as a child, and while I have in fact mildly enjoyed much if not most of it as a sweet and humour-full animal/people interaction tale, and can also understand why and how it is considered a classic and much beloved by many, as an older adult reading Mr. Popper's Penguins for the first time, the ending, with the penguins being sent to the Arctic just absolutely and totally rubs me the wrong way, [...]


  • My Four-Year-Old is just beginning to be interested in having chapter books read to her. But as she gets stressed out by conflict of any sort, it's kind of tough finding good candidates for her. This is a winner. For those of you who haven't read the book, the basic premise is that a house painter who spends his off-hours reading about (and writing to) explorers in the South Pole receives a penguin in the mail from one of those explorers. Since his work is over for the winter, he becomes very in [...]


  • I remember loving this in third grade when the school librarian read it aloud to our class. Decided to try it on the seven year-old, who likes animal stories, and was curious to see if I'd still like it at this late date. Yes, but not as much. This time around, I thought it got off to a slow start, and it struck me that it would be odd today for the main (human) character in a children's book to be an adult, although the rumpled, absent-minded, polar-fanatic house-painter Mr. Popper is hardly a [...]


  • There has apparently been a resurgance in interest in this 1938 childrens' book since I have been seeing it everywhere I go. Since I never read it growing up I thought I would give a read. The story while cute and age appropriate for 4-8 y/o seemed inadequate in some way even for a kid's book. The ending totally turned me off of the book altogether (the father leaves for the Arctic for a year or two with barely a good-bye.) Maybe that was the whole problem I had with the book. The father was so [...]


  • My son the nature-lover, who is not as avid a reader as his brothers, is a die-hard fan of this book. His enthusiasm began in school when his teacher read the book to his class, and before she could finish, he persuaded me to bring it home to read at bedtime. It's the charming and often funny story of an ordinary house painter who dreams of Antarctica. When he receives a penguin as a surprise gift, the adventures begin! The book was written in the 30's, but it really transcends time. A fun follo [...]


  • Mr Popper is a DIRTBAG, and this book is ridiculous. I am sure it's because I'm too old to come to the book for the first time - my 4yo loved it until the end - but I couldn't get past the dumb dumbness of the whole situation.



  • I couldn't keep reading because I kept thinking that the penguins could never survive in such a hot climate and Discovery Channel realism was intruding on the lighthearted nature of the story.


  • This was a fun book to read, which I valued for it's good old-fashioned lifestyle and language, and the imaginative and hilarious plot. It's one of those older books that are popular with kids for a reason, and adds a little fun to life.


  • Mr Popper is a mild mannered house painter who loves to listen to radio programs about penguins. So when an Admiral sends him a REAL penguin, he is delighted to have it for a pet. Only "Captain Cook" gets lonely, and needs a mate, so the Admiral sends "Greta". Soon there are 12 penguins living in the Poppers basement. And times are tough and the Poppers don't have much money to feed those penguins. What to do?This is a warm, funny, old fashioned family story that makes a wonderful read aloud. Su [...]


  • Review written in 2nd grade: This is a very good book of a man that got one penguin in a box. After that he got one more. Then the new penguin got babies. There were ten penguins after the babies came. In the end of the book he goes to the south pole. If you want to know all the funny (sic) that happens to the Popper family, read the book. You can get it [in] our library.



  • Finished this with my 8yr old last night. She seemed to really enjoy the book as we read it.We read this book as a part of her school's newest book reading adventure, One School, One Book and each day we had to read two chapters and then the next day, the kids would answer trivia questions to try and win prizes. It was a great way to get them to do more than just read the words, they had to comprehend what they were reading and hearing us read to them.As for the book, you can definitely tell thi [...]


  • I can't believe all the years I taught and I never read this book. I felt like I was missing out. The penguins adapted quite nicely to life in the big town. I'd recommend this book to an 8 or 9 year old. Great group read too. Then they can take a quiz


  • I read this as a child and really enjoyed it so I read it to my daughter. She really loved it and maybe I have to just remind myself that this is a book for the "younger folk."As an adult, when I read this, I just thought it was just Sillylly, as inis story doesn't make any sense at all and is just full of nonsense. Don't get me wrong, I love children's stories that have bits of fantasy to them: Ralph S. Mouse, Indian in the Cupboard, etcIt's just that, I found this to borderline the ridiculous. [...]


  • Briefly:1. Didn't like the dad leaving at the end with everyone happy or fine to see him go. The mom was just glad she didn't have to clean up after him. Heartless. 2. The references to money. Poor example of money management and debt acceptance. Absolutely not principles I am teaching my children. 3. Not a lot to like in mr popper. He was untidy. Lounged around all day in the winter. Wasn't worried about providing and deemed it his wife's problem to handle the money to feed the family. Just thr [...]


  • O carte care-i învaţă pe copii că-i ok când bărbatul îi zice femeii "plec sho în lume, vin peste un an sau doi", pentru că ea răspunde în genul "abia fac mai uşor curăţenie iarna fără un bărbat în casă". Chiar dacă mai are doi copii de crescut. Viaţa e frumoasă.


  • The Popper family gets a penguin and then there penguin was sick so they needed to buy another penguin, to make him better. Both the penguins got babies and the Popper family of penguins started to grow. The poppers penguins started to get famous because they learned cool tricks and stuff. Finily the guy who sent the penguins wanted them to take them back for a movie.


  • Hẳn nhiều bạn nhỏ không mấy xa lạ với việc nuôi một con chó, con mèo, con chuột bạch hay thậm chí một con vẹt. Nhưng còn nuôi một con chim cánh cụt thì sao? Ai cũng biết, chim cánh cụt chỉ sống ở Nam Cực, một vùng đất quanh năm băng giá. Vậy nên, chuyện gì sẽ xảy ra nếu trong nhà bạn có không chỉ một con chim cánh cụt mà thậm chí cả một bầy cánh cụt? Bạn có biết làm thế nào để giữ [...]


  • 5 starsLexile Level: 910L.Like Winnie the Pooh, Richard and Florence Atwater’s Mr. Popper’s Penguins has some element within it that spurred this youngster to read the story again and again.And again.Unlike many children’s stories, Mr. Popper’s Penguins’ protagonist, Mr. Popper, (Mr. “Pauper”), has a precarious economic status that figures prominently alongside the serio-comic plot. An interior craftsman, (painting, wallpapering, and cabinet-making), Mr. Popper seems a “common ma [...]


  • Finally got the chance to read Mr. Popper's Penguins! I enjoyed the story and found the characters humorous and unique for this time period. I even learned a couple of things. When the newspaper published the photo of Popper it was printed "in rotogravure." I had to look this up and found that this kind of printing method uses a cylindrical plate instead of a flat plate. It was relatively new printing method since the early 1900s. Then an idiom puzzled me. Mrs. Popper didn't want to leave to go [...]


  • Started this book with my son. It's cute and we both really enjoyed it. Not one of my favorite children's books but it's a good book to read with your child or alone if you want.


  • This was a very cute book, right up to the end. I loved that Mr. Popper ultimately tried to do what was best for the penguins, but it annoyed me somewhat that he left his family. I would have enjoyed the ending more if they had been able to choose whether or not to go, or at the very least, he had been able to discuss it with Mrs. Popper. I get that it's a children's book, but the idea of them discussing everything up to that point regarding the penguins, then having him decide in the split seco [...]


  • Mr. Popper, an avid reader of literature concerning the Poles, receives a gift of a penguin from Admiral Cook. What ensues is the story of how he and his family cope with a penguin, and then many more penguins. This is the fourth time, I think, that I have read this so it has lost some of its charm for me. The 7yo enjoyed it well enough. The penguin antics are funny and this is a story that appeals to a child's imagination. Robert Lawson's illustrations are fabulous, as always. A cute, enjoyable [...]
