Synopses & Reviews
It has taken weeks and a lot of whispery chirps for Goodly, Lovely, Angel, Neatly, and Perfect to plan this Perfect Surprise Birdday Party for their good friend Tacky the Penguin. With cards, songs, presents, fishy ice cream, cake, and surprise entertainment, how could anything go wrong? But one imperfect party mishap leads to another, and the party planning penguins start to wonder: how imperfect can a perfect party get? Luckily, the wit and good cheer of Tacky himself makes the imperfect perfect with a flap of his flippers and a tap of his tippywebs! In this witty and playful picture book, Helen Lester and Lynn Munsinger celebrate the 25th anniversay of Tacky the Penguin!
Helen Lester and Lynn Munsinger's beloved penguin Tacky saves the day (in unique style, of course) in another adventure in Nice Icy Land--now available in paperback!
Everybody has a birdday and everybody needsand#160;a birdday book!
The Nice Icy Land was crackling with busy-ness. It had taken weeks and a lot of whispery chirps for Tacky the Penguinand#8217;s friends to plan a Perfect Surprise Birdday Party for him on his special hatchday. With songs, presents, cake, fishy ice cream, and surprise entertainment from Iglooslaviaand#8217;s own Twinklewebs the Dance Queen, how could anything go wrong? But itand#8217;s a comedy of errors . . . and all is far from perfect. Luckily, Tackyand#8217;s good cheerand#8212;and his flippity dance movesand#8212;save the day with a flap of his flippers and a tap of his tippywebs. Munsingerand#8217;s adorable, expressive penguin illustrations are the icing on the cake.
Tacky and his fellow penguins are off to summer camp in Nice Icy Land to enjoy themselves while Rock Hopping, Line Dancing, and playing Capture the Ice Cube. One night, they gather around the campfire to sing, eat smores, and tell scary stories. But after going to bed, something straight out of one of their scary stories pays the sleeping penguins a visit. Goodly, Lovely, Angel, Neatly, and Perfect think they should high-tail it out of there, but it is Tacky—with some unexpected heroics—who saves the day.
Includes lyrics to the official Camp Whoopihaha song!
