School Library Journal - 04/01/1988 K-Gr 2 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 critters with ``get-rich-quick plans'' that threaten the penguins' existence. With his un-penguin-like antics, Tacky puzzles the hunters to such an extent that they're firmly convinced they cannot be in the ``land of the pretty penguins.'' This is a rollicking tale that clearly shows that there are advantages to being an individual. Munsinger cheerfully captures the mood of the tale with her whimsical, full-color illustrations that are particularly strong in depicting the hunters' determined, then befuddled, expressions and Tacky's madcap antics. This is sure to elicit lots of chuckles from young readers.
