If you ever had a dream to do something you would like this book. This is a story
about a normal house painter that gets a penguin that changes his life. This
penguin named Captain Cook is no ordinary penguin, he sleeps in an ice box and
eats canned shrimp. Mr. Popper has dreamed and still does dream about going to
the South Pole.
We recommend this book to anybody who likes those silly little penguins in tuxedos
and the South Pole. We also recommend it to people who are bound to follow
their dreams and do what they dreamed before. The book "Mr. Popper's
Penguins" won a Newberry Honor award.
