Description

Tacky’s an odd bird, or Penguin rather, who likes to do splashy cannonballs and greet his companions with a loud “What’s happening?” In fact, he’s something of an eccentric, which his fellow penguins find somewhat bothersome until his odd behavior saves the day!

Praise For Tacky the Penguin

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