Mr. Popper's Penguins (Richard and Florence Atwater)

We are reading this for Grade 3 book club. I'm actually quite surprised at what a hit it is. The story is great - but it is written in an older style. I wondered if that might turn the kids off. So far, we have had nothing but rave reviews. I can see how this would make a great movie!

Goodreads summary:

The Poppers unexpectedly come into possession of a penguin, then get a penguin from the zoo who mates with the first penguin to have 10 baby penguins. Before long, something must be done before they eat the Poppers out of house and home!

A classic of American humor, this story of a gentle housepainter and his high stepping penguins has delighted children for generations.
