We have the rule that if a movie comes out based on a book then you have to read the book first! It saves alot of
"but I don't need to read the book, I've already seen the movie".
When we saw the previews for Mr Popper's Penguins G got all excited and said how much he'd already loved the book and couldn't wait to see the movie! It left me out of the excitement so on our trip to the library I got the book and read it! Thus proving to G that the rule goes for Mom too!
I would give it a 5 out of 5 for a rating.
It was the prefect start of summer read!
short sweet and simple!
