    " Tacky is an odd bird. He always causes trouble and gets on everyone's nerves, but when they need help he comes to the rescue. This is a fun story about accepting differences and being happy with who you are, even if you are odd! "

    " Tacky the penguin is the first in a series of Tacky books. Tacky is an odd penguin who doesn't act like every other penguin. His "odd" ways always seem to benefit the group so each book ends with "Tacky is an odd bird, but a nice bird to have around". "

    " This book is all about everyone is unique in their own ways. This would be a great diversity type of book to read in a classroom. "
