Between the fun sound effects the narrator includes in his reading and the simplicity of the story itself, "Mr. Popper's Penguins" will be sure to brighten up the afternoon of anyone who enjoys a cute, family friendly, and comedic story.
A teacher read this story in one of my grade school classes many years ago. I enjoyed hearing it again.
A lovely, gently humorous narration of a book beloved by my children; as satisfying as reading the book aloud myself and a much more authentic experience than the movie of the same name.
both my girl and my boy enjoy listening to this story - so it's a winner in this house, or on car rides!
I purchased this audio book for my son to listen to at bed time. So AFTER i purchased it audible tells me it may take hours for it to be available to download. It did not take HOURS for them to deduct the price from my account however. This is one reason i canceled my membership with audible.
The download kept stopping, and would freeze up my Ipod or Iphone. Anything it was downloaded on it would lock up. Same place on every device. We got about 45 minutes into the story and that was about it. What a waste of money. My son was very disappointed as he couldn't wait to listen to the book.
