Tacky the Penguin

by Helen Lester


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. When hunters come to the penguins' Nice Icy Land, Tacky's individuality saves the day!
