It is hard enough for Mr. Popper, a simple painter, to support himself and his family. The addition of twelve penguins makes it impossible to make both ends meet – until Mr. Popper has the splendid idea to turn the talented penguins into a traveling vaudeville act! The entire family will be tapping along with Mr. Popper and his “performing” feathered friends. A holiday treat for the whole family!
Recommended for Kindergarten and up.
