by Helen Lester
illustrated by Lynn Munsinger

Tacky the Penguin is competing with his friends in the iceberg-wide Penguin Cheering Contest. But will he ever be able to learn the synchronised moves and win the contest?


Tacky has his own way of doing things. He handles the situation in his own unique style & proves that he's certainly "a nice bird to have around." A smooth, fun read. The colourful illustrations are charming & subtle. The penguins wear sweaters and caps; Tacky wears his over a Hawaiian shirt, & his cap is askew

My daughter & I loved this book so much, we even know Tacky's cheer by heart. This is a beautiful way to show children that being different is okay

This is a super little story about the one person who stands out in every group. Great for a classroom. This aids in the understanding that the "odd" person may be the WINNER!

It teaches that you can do anything that you want to do if you try hard enough

Tacky is such an odd bird! My child was drawn to his eccentric style of dress, and the rhyming of the cheers. She had this book memorised in no time, and it has always been one of our favourite books to read together. I recommend it highly!
