Instant "ladders" to MR. POPPER'S PENGUINS, including a reference to Captain Cook (the name of Mr. Popper's house guest in the perennial children's favorite). It's David Small's illustrations (character expressions are a mix of deadpan and surprise. A little girl running out of the tide pool exhibit is classic Small work) that really bring this whole book to life. A little more penguin mayhem would have earned the fifth star, but this is a cute picture book for 2012.
