Tacky is the strangest penguin you will ever meet. But that’s okay! Just because he is different doesn’t make him fun and a good friend. The other penguins laugh at him and think he is strange because he does everything different from them including marching in time and the way he does cannonballs in the water instead of swimming like a nice gentleman. Tacky doesn’t care though! He’s having fun! But what happens when hunters find his island and are looking for penguins they heard were there. Can he prove there are no penguins on the island and save his friends? Find out if you read Tacky the Penguin by Helen Lester.
