Publisher's 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 wouldn’t be a problem if all the other penguins weren’t such . . . conformists.
In their usual zany style, Lester and Munsinger demonstrate the problems and advantages of being an individual. Now in Spanish, Tacky is perfect for children learning Spanish and for Spanish-speaking children.

Publisher's Weekly

PreS-Gr 2-Taky the Penguin is noticeably different from his fellow birds. Where they are graceful, elegant, courteous, and adorable, Taky is disheveled, frumpy, clumsy, and exuberant. One would think that this would lead to all sorts of problems, but it doesn't. Instead, while his elegant peers quake behind an ice floe, Tacky exhibits all of his boisterous, strange behavior and scares away some hunters. Sometimes, different is good. First published in English in 1990, this popular character appears in several other Houghton Mifflin titles (e.g., Three Cheers for Taky, 1996, Taky in Trouble, 1998 and most recently Taky and the Emperor, 2000), which have not yet been translated into Spanish. Recommended for public libraries and bookstores. MOB Copyright 2001 Cahners Business Information.
