Description
Tacky the Penguin goes windsurfing and ends up on a tropical island, captive to an elephant who, upon seeing Tacky's floral Hawaiian shirt, mistakes him for a bouquet of flowers.The elephant thinks that Tacky would make a pretty centerpiece, so she arranges him in a vase and sets him on her table.Tacky's fans are sure to delight in the show as Tacky uses all of his best penguin moves to wriggle himself out of this hilarious jungle mix-up.Only the team of Helen Lester and Lynn Munsinger could pull off a tale of such far-fetched adventure.They are masters at the art of creating silly stories and beloved characters that make children laugh out loud.
