Goodly, Lovely, Angel, Neatly, and Perfect have everything organized and running like clockwork. And then there's Tacky. This particular penguin is one odd bird.
His wrapping skills need some work. The decorations he makes are unique to say the least. But when a band of hunters arrive and threaten to ruin the penguins' Christmas party, could Tacky be the one to outsmart them all?
I thought this was a fun read. Lester's characters are humerous, especially Tacky. I also love the names that she uses for the penguins. Tacky is reminiscent of that one family member who is just a bit different, but loved all the same.
Lynn Munsinger's illustrations are hilarious! She depicts Tacky's oddities in the funniest of ways. Children will delight in Tacky's wacky antics.
This is a wonderfully festive read for children ages 3-6.
