Tacky the Penguin by Helen LesterThis is a mildly funny and sweet story about an unconventional penguin and his conformist peers.
For me, the names of all the penguins were the most amusing part of the book.
This book has some good messages: that being odd or different and being your own person can be a huge positive, and that it’s worth it to make friends with those who might, on the surface, seem weird in any way. It could make a great read aloud book for groups of children to discourage them from ostracizing anybody. Along with these lessons, it’s simply a fun book.
