Tacky must be getting older; this book almost borders on a tad scary. But not quite! I honestly have never ever thought of being able to fancy up an igloo like a haunted house but obviously that shows the limits of my creative thoughts! Helen Lester and Illustrator Lynn Munsinger team up again to blow the top off of what might be possible up (down?) in Penguin-land. Come on: be honest. Have you ever thought of a haunted igloo?
Tacky is in usual form, not getting ready for a haunted house while Goodly, Neatly, Perfect, Angel, and Lovely are doing all of the traditional things penguins do for a haunted house. Then the six penguins decide to dress up as what they are most afraid of. The problem lies in Tacky: he doesn’t have anything he is afraid of! By evening time, trick or treaters arrive at the haunted igloo. All is going as planned until some ghosts who aren’t really what they say they are show up and toss all plans into the snow. But never fear, Tacky is here to save the day! If you are a Tacky fan or know of someone who is, you just might want to hunt down this new one from Lester. It is a unique winner!
