Mr. Popper's Penguins

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.
