Description
Deck the iceberg wrap a gifty Fa la la la la la la la la... Tacky, Goodly, Lovely, Angel, Neatly, and Perfect are celebrating the holiday with good cheer, singing, and lots of presents. Tacky's present is a little bit different, and not exactly what his friends had in mind, but when the Christmas merrymaking is interrupted by hunters in search of pretty penguins, it's Tacky's gift that helps to save the day . A bonus CD of original carols includes: Deck the Iceberg, Sandy Clawz is Coming to Town, The Six Days of Christmas, I m Dreaming of a Green Christmas, and Oh Tackytree



About the Author
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.Lynn Munsinger was born in Massachusetts. She has illustrated more than ninety books for children -- bringing Wodney Wat, Tacky the Penguin, a porcupine named Fluffy, the Teeny Tiny Ghost, and Ogden Nash's "Custard the Dragon" to charming life. Her watercolor illustrations have been praised for their "classic quality" ("Publishers Weekly") and "mix of wry humor and affection" ("Booklist").



Praise For Tacky's Christmas [With CD (Audio)]

"The comical illustrations, silly mistaken-identity concept and the impossibly dim hunters' hilarious comments all add up to a funny, entertaining read proving once again that Tacky is 'a nice bird to have around.'"—Kirkus Reviews "Solid for reading aloud, especially in December. Munsinger's appealing watercolors illustrate the story with humor and finesse."—Booklist

"Munsinger's jolly illustrations ratchet up the silliness of Lester's laugh-out-loud story, and Tacky is as Tacky as ever."—The Horn Book
