This was a great book to read growing up and I know I read it multiple times. It's very engaging and an easy read. I can't remember if it was a mandatory book in school or I read it for fun, but it really stuck with me.

I love this book and have since the first time it was presented to me in elementary school. The story is very unique and also covers a lot of technology that younger generations have no idea about such as ice boxes and using actual cubes of ice to keep food and penguins chilled.

What a delightfully, whimsical tale. I remember reading this over and over. It was so fun the way Mr. Popper interacted with animals. A child's fantasy world, for sure.

I haven't read the book but I saw the movie and I wasn't that big of a fan so I don't know what to expect from the book.
