Tacky the Penguin
Publication Date: August 1990
Tacky's perfect friends find him annoying until his odd behavior saves the day.
Helen Lester and Lynn Munsinger have been together through thick and thin since first publishing The Wizard, the Fairy, and the Magic Chicken in 1983. They have collaborated on the hilarious Tacky the Penguin series and many other wildly funny and popular titles, including the award-winning Hooway for Wodney Wat. Helen Lester is a full-time writer who makes her home in New York, and Lynn Munsinger is a full-time illustrator living in Vermont.
"Droll facial expressions, which still retain their animal quality, add more humor to a perceptive text about being different." Booklist, ALA
