Description

An offbeat penguin shows his peers the power of individuality in this humorous tale from the author of Pookins Gets Her Way.

Tacky is an odd bird. He 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.

When intimidating visitors invade their peaceful, nice, icy land, it'll take a lot more than a bunch of perfect penguins to save the day. Thank goodness Tacky's such an odd bird!

"This book is must reading for any kid—or grown-up—who refuses to follow the pack."—Publishers Weekly
