Tacky the Penguin

Tacky the Penguin is one of my favorite books.  It is a delightful tale about being true to yourself--even when it means being a little different from everybody else.  
Deep in the Arctic Region lives a community of penguins who love to march in straight lines, do graceful dives off icebergs, and sing pretty songs - all of them that is, except for Tacky. Tacky is an odd bird who does things a bit differently than the other penguins do. He likes to wear Hawaiian shirts with bow ties, do splashy cannonballs, and he couldn't march in a straight line if his life depended on it! One day the hunters come looking for some pretty penguins to capture and sell. All of the penguins run in fright - all except for Tacky. Tacky's odd ways may be just the thing that saves the day.
