Description

Mr. Popper lives a sensible life as a house painter, making just enough to live on. He often wishes he has seen the world before settling&lt;br /&gt;<br />down - particularly the North and South Poles. As a busy summer of work ends, Mr. Popper prepares to spend his off-season reading about Arctic regions. He even writes to his favorite explorer, Admiral Drake. He does not expect that Admiral Drake will answer, but he does - and in a very unexpected way. With the arrival of a penguin named Captain Cook, life at the Popper's will never be the same!&lt;br /&gt;<br />&lt;br /&gt;<br />Captain Cook starts to get sick from loneliness, so a zoo sends its lovely penguin, Greta. Soon Captain Cook and his new mate lay eggs, and 10 new little penguins join the crowd. Complications set in as Mr. Popper, who doesn't even have money for roast beef or ice cream, starts buying enough shrimp for 12 penguins. Then he has the furnace removed and a freezing unit installed in the basement.&lt;br /&gt;<br />&lt;br /&gt;<br />Now suddenly faced with debts he can't pay, Mr. Popper comes up with a solution: he'll begin a performing penguin act! So begins the family's adventures across the country, living in hotels, performing on vaudeville stages, and making enough money to pay off their debts and more. Unfortunately traveling can be exhausting, and near the end of their tour Mr. Popper makes a terrible mistake. He takes them to the wrong theater, the penguins frolic with the seals, and chaos erupts.&lt;br /&gt;<br />&lt;br /&gt;<br />Luckily, as Mr. Popper and his penguins languish in jail, Admiral Drake arrives and rescues them. As the family heads for home, Admiral Drake offers to take the penguins to the North Pole, and invites Mr. Popper to accompany them. &lt;br /&gt;<br />&lt;br /&gt;<br />Interactive CD-rom.show more
