Waters' adaptation of author Richard Atwater's beloved children's book. Shortly after penning a letter to a team of Arctic explorers, Mr. Popper is surprised to receive a penguin in the mail. Later, after making his mischievous new pal a cozy new home in the freezer, the hapless Mr. Popper comes into possession of a playful female penguin as well. Before long Mr. Popper finds himself surrounded by a growing family of the flightless birds, and begins training them to perform in a traveling show dubbed Popper's Performing Penguins. With each new town the show travels to, pandemonium is quick to follow. Jason Buchanan, RoviRead Less

Cute but not the book
This modern version of the book was funny and entertaining to my students. It did not capture the uniqueness of the book. The hollywood version is more "modern" complete with broken family trying to get back together, comic inept dad and all together mom. The close family group in the original is not to be seen. Totally unbelieveable but enjoyable.
