Tacky is an odd bird who marches to the beat of his own drummer. He s something of an eccentric, which wouldn t be a problem if all the other penguins weren t such . . . conformists. Helen Lester and Lynn Munsinger have teamed up to tell Tacky s story, about the day when some hunters come to the penguins Nice Icy Land, and how Tacky s individuality saves the day!

Publishers Weekly

None of the penguins can tolerate Tacky's loud habits--until they scare off a pack of hunters. PW declared that ``this book is must reading for any kid--or grown-up--who refuses to follow the pack.'' Ages 4-8. (Sept.)
