Tacky Goes to Camp

Helen Lester, Author, Lynn M. Munsinger, Illustrator , illus. by Lynn Munsinger. Houghton Mifflin $16 (32p) ISBN 978-0-618-98812-9

Slipshod, overweight penguin Tacky joins his more orderly penguin companions—“Goodly, Lovely, Angel, Neatly, and Perfect”—on a trip to Camp Whoopihaha in his seventh outing. 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. Ages 3–7.(May)
