Summary Mr. Popper's Penguins is the story of a boy whose explorer father loves him but neglects him in favor of his career. Once the boy grows to sharkish real-estate wheeler-dealer manhood in NYC, he does the same thing to his wife, daughter, and son. Life is going fine until his dad's final gift to him arrives. Then Mr. Popper's life changes radically, because the gift is penguins--live, breathing, fish-loving penguins.
