Product description


Tacky the Penguin returns for a seventh adventure, his funniest yet . . . . And it's nothing short of hilarious to witness Tacky in his bulgy sleeping bag, unknowingly lying atop a huge pile of leftover s'mores that, despite his valiant efforts, "he just...couldn't...quite...finnnnish." In the end, as usual, the lovable slob saves the day, and the campers discover that their best defense against a ravenous, campsite-raiding bear is a s'more-addled penguin.--Horn Book, starred review Lester's well-paced, witty tale is sure to please fans of the Tacky series, while the colorful ink-and-wash artwork will have them laughing out loud. A refreshingly different summer-camp story, this is a fine addition to a consistently amusing series.--Booklist As always, Tacky brings his larger-than-life personality to the excursion: his camping supplies include a television, pizza and roller blades; his "arts and crafts" project is a sprawling, abstract style painting; and he tips the canoe and can't tell a good scary story. Munsinger's art adds plenty of humor, up through the finale when Tacky proves his worth.--Publishers Weekly This is laugh-out-loud material for loyal Tacky fans and an excellent choice for new arrivals in the Nice Icy Land.--School Library Journal
