Tacky the Penguin is a total nonconformist who lives with a group of formal, proper penguins. But it is Tacky who foils the plans of three hunters who threaten the penguins. With his un-penguin-like behavior, Tacky puzzles the hunters to such an extent that they are firmly convinced that they cannot be in the “land of the pretty penguins”. This is a rollicking tale that clearly shows there are advantages to being an individual. This whimsical tale delights children and adults alike.
Activity—Retell the story using a penguin puppet to contrast the movements of Tacky and the other proper penguins.
