Product Description

Tacky the Penguin is a total nonconformist who lives with a group of formal, proper penguins. But it is Tacky who foils the plans of the three critters with "get-rich-quick plans" that threaten the penguins' existence. With his un-penguin-like antics, Tacky puzzles the hunters to such an extent that they're firmly convinced that they are not in the "land of the pretty penguins." This is a rollicking tale that clearly shows that there are advantages to being an individual. Sure to elicit lots of chuckles from young readers in Kindergarten through Grade 2.
