Lester, Helen Tacky and the Haunted Igloo. PICTURE BOOK. Houghton Mifflin, 2015. $17.
The penguins are excited because this year they are going to have a Hallowwen party with trick-or-treaters and everything. Tacky is not very helpful – until the hunters arrive to spoil everything. Then Tacky manages to swoop in and do just what is needed to rid them of their foes.
As much as I love penguins, Tacky confuses me. Tacky’s contribution to the story didn’t make much sense to me, especially because I don’t understand why Tacky’s costume was able o scare away the hunters. Can someone explain to me?
