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

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
