About the book

Tacky's perfect friends find him annoying until his odd behavior saves the day.

Tacky is an odd bird. He likes to do splashy cannonballs and greet his companions with a loud "What's happening?" In fact, he's something of an eccentric, which wouldn't be a problem if all the other penguins weren't such . . . conformists.

When intimidating visitors invade their peaceful nice, icy land it'll take a lot more than a bunch of perfect penguins to save the day. Thank goodness Tacky's such an odd bird!

Reviews

"Droll facial expressions, which still retain their animal quality, add more humor to a perceptive text about being different." Booklist, ALA
