Building a clock to teach a moral
Or as others might say, 'setting the scene.'
Good book but...
...weird in some places.
A Cute and Unbelievable Tale
First published in 1938, Mr. Popper's Penguins brings us an adorable story about a family that finds themselves taking care of a penguin, that soon becomes quite a few more, and what they had to do to take care of them.
I had already fallen in love with the 2002 movie of the same title, with Jim Caviezel playing the Count, that made me want to read the book. The amount of detail in this book made it magnificent.
Exceptionally creative, but...
...there were a couple of things that I couldn't quite see as being for the Young Adult targeted age group.
Difficulties from the get-go
First, there was the writing.
Get a professional cover made
Your book is well written and deserves a cover to match. The one you have now nowhere near does this story justice.
The Original Classic
I received this book when I was a teen since I loved Winnie-the-Pooh and bears in general but didn’t appreciate the humor and the way the characters were written until I read it to my kids.
Twist on a common whodunit
The opening was intriguing, with colorful characters brought to life by the skill of the writing. I enjoyed the banter between them...for a while. I'll get back to that.
The oddities bothered me
First off, it wasn't poorly written, but it was the writing style that annoyed me somewhat.
