El Pinguino Taky = Tacky the Penguin

Helen Lester, Author, Lynn M. Munsinger, Illustrator Houghton Mifflin Harcourt (HMH) $6.95 (32p) ISBN 978-0-618-12531-9
PreS-Gr 2-Taky the Penguin is noticeably different from his fellow birds. Where they are graceful, elegant, courteous, and adorable, Taky is disheveled, frumpy, clumsy, and exuberant. One would think that this would lead to all sorts of problems, but it doesn't. Instead, while his elegant peers quake behind an ice floe, Tacky exhibits all of his boisterous, strange behavior and scares away some hunters. Sometimes, different is good. First published in English in 1990, this popular character appears in several other Houghton Mifflin titles (e.g., Three Cheers for Taky, 1996, Taky in Trouble, 1998 and most recently Taky and the Emperor, 2000), which have not yet been translated into Spanish. Recommended for public libraries and bookstores. MOB
