"An avid follower of Admiral Drake's radio broadcasts from the South Pole, housepainter Mr. Popper, of Stillwater, USA, receives an astonishing delivery from the Admiral, which has delighted readers for more than 50 years. Audio listeners have a singular opportunity to delight in this visit of penguins to 432 Proudfoot Avenue. Nick Sullivan brings unflappability to the tale. He is composed and straightforward as he enlivens each new character--from optimistic Mr. Popper to the exasperated-but-ever-polite Mrs. Popper to the delighted Popper children, who are ever ready to adapt to life with their new housemates. Sullivan also delivers fine penguin impersonations as Captain Cook and Greta, who are stars in the cross-country adventure of Popper's Performing Penguins. A.R. (c) AudioFile 2009, Portland, Maine"
