K-Gr 3–When Christmas comes to the Nice Icy Land, so do hunters. But thanks to Tacky and his penguin crew, holiday antics ensue. Because there are no trees to be had, Tacky's friends decide to decorate him as a Christmas tree (over his Santa outfit). The hunters mistake him for “Sandy Clawz,” whom they revere, and think that his friends are elves. There's nothing to do but enjoy a convivial evening of fish pudding, songs, and games. Munsinger's signature illustrations continue to delight. And with a CD and a songbook of Tacky's carols included, fans of the series will not be disappointed.Madeline J.

When Christmas comes to Nice Icy Land, Tacky dons a Santa suit, and five penguins organize the present wrapping, ornament making, and tree trimming. Three hunters arrive, looking for penguins. But, believing that Tacky is Santa, they put aside their traps and stay for Christmas dinner. Though perhaps not the funniest picture book in the popular Tacky the Penguin series, it’s still solid for reading aloud, especially in December. Munsinger’s appealing watercolors illustrate the story with humor and finesse. A CD and booklet of “Tacky’s Carols,” five rewritten Christmas songs, tuck neatly into an endpaper pocket.
