Happy Birdday, Tacky!

by Helen Lester

Published 14 May 2013
Goodly, Lovely, Angel, Neatly, and Perfect have spent weeks planning the perfect party to celebrate Tacky's hatchday, and while nothing turns out quite as they expected, the penguins and their special guest have a wonderful time.

It's Halloween, and Tacky and his penguin friends are setting up a haunted igloo! But with Tacky around, something is bound to go a little wonky! Just when the penguins' halloween is spookier than they could have hoped, things turn a lot less spooky and a lot more scary. Three suspiciously familiar ghosts demand treats! Snacky Tacky has eaten every last one, so who will save the day? Why - Tacky, of course!
