A Stuga On the Cusp of the Orust Riviera, tucked away next to a hobbit hole in the woods.

Mr. Popper's Penguins by Richard Atwater

Mr. Popper's Penguins - Richard Atwater, Florence Atwater


Why have I shelved this as Hallowe'en read?

Page 7, paragraph 4, second sentence: "I have papered all the rooms in the new apartment building on Elm Street"

So, I had no problem cracking this open except, except, except...

the copy I have been sent, contrary to what I ordered, is this movie tie-in version and there are photos from the film in the middle.

The story itself is lovely fun with only a couple of domestic violence against penguin scenes; perfect for reading outloud.
