Description


Deck the iceberg wrap a gifty
Fa la la la la la la la la...
 
Tacky, Goodly, Lovely, Angel, Neatly, and Perfect are celebrating the holiday with good cheer, singing, and lots of presents. Tacky’s present is a little bit different, and not exactly what his friends had in mind, but when the Christmas merrymaking is interrupted by hunters in search of pretty penguins, it's Tacky's gift that helps to save the day….
 
A bonus CD of original carols includes: Deck the Iceberg, Sandy Clawz is Coming to Town, The Six Days of Christmas, I’m Dreaming of a Green Christmas, and Oh Tackytree!

Praise For…


"The comical illustrations, silly mistaken-identity concept and the impossibly dim hunters' hilarious comments all add up to a funny, entertaining read proving once again that Tacky is 'a nice bird to have around.'"—Kirkus Reviews
"Solid for reading aloud, especially in December. Munsinger's appealing watercolors illustrate the story with humor and finesse."—Booklist

"Munsinger's jolly illustrations ratchet up the silliness of Lester's laugh-out-loud story, and Tacky is as Tacky as ever."—The Horn Book
