Mr Popper’s Penguins: Audiobook Advent Day Three
It’s time to open the third door of our Audiobook Advent Calendar!
Mr Popper’s Penguins is a charming children’s story that has become a true classic. First published in 1938, it has gone on to inspire a film starring Jim Carrey.
In the story Mr. Popper dreams about leaving his boring life and going on an adventure to the Antarctic. When the legendary Admiral Drake sends him a live penguin in response to his letter, he is thrilled.
Very soon, he also receives a female companion for his penguin and they have 10 children. But Mr. Popper has enough trouble supporting his human family, and so he has the idea to take his penguins to the stage.
Soon, Mr. Popper is up to his ears in adventure as he tries to manage 12 performing penguins and the trouble they inevitably get into.
