Amazon.com Review
More than 60 years have not dated this wonderfully absurd tale--it still makes kids (and parents) laugh out loud. Poor Mr. Popper isn't exactly unhappy; he just wishes he had seen something of the world before meeting Mrs. Popper and settling down. Most of all, he wishes he had seen the Poles, and spends his spare time between house-painting jobs reading all about polar explorations. Admiral Drake, in response to Mr. Popper's fan letter, sends him a penguin; life at 432 Proudfoot Avenue is never the same again. From one penguin living in the icebox, the Popper family grows to include 12 penguins, all of whom must be fed. Thus is born "Popper's Performing Penguins, First Time on Any Stage, Direct from the South Pole." Their adventures while on tour are hilarious, with numerous slapstick moments as the penguins disrupt other acts and invade hotels. Classic chapter-a-night fun. (Ages 5 to 10) --Richard Farr

An inside look at YouTube’s new ad-free subscription service

A family is gathered around the dinner table: Dad and the kids have spaghetti on their plates, Mom is standing, serving spoon in hand. She cocks her head to the side and with a broad smile declares, "Don’t thank me, thank the savings. " The family freezes and a Geico logo appears hovering over the table as a voice intones, "You can’t skip this Geico ad, because it’s already over. The ad, which won a Grand Prix at Cannes this year, cleverly manipulates the conventions of YouTube advertising: a short, often skippable marketing message that runs before the video you actually want to watch. Advertising has always paid the bills at YouTube, which, over the last decade, has grown from an oddball collection of clips into the world’s largest and most influential video portal. The service is on pace to earn around $5 billion in revenue this year. But starting today, advertising will no longer be the only way YouTube and its creators make money. The service is rolling out its biggest change yet: a monthly subscription offering that completely removes ads from the equation. The new option is called YouTube Red. Along with removing ads, subscribers will be able to save videos for offline viewing, and keep videos running in the background on mobile. That monthly fee also gives you access to Google Play Music, meaning you get two streaming services for the same price Spotify or Apple Music charge for one without video. At a star-studded event in Los Angeles today, YouTube introduced a slate of new "Originals" available only to subscribers. The service plans to match its native stars with traditional Hollywood and television production talent, all backed by a generous helping of Google’s money. With Red, YouTube is signaling a definitive shift from an ad-funded video-hosting service to a media company that will eventually go head to head with Hulu and Netflix. YouTube has the potential to dominate the industry: if just 5 percent of its US viewers were to sign up for the service, it would add more than a billion dollars in annual.
