PreS-Gr 2-Get ready for a return trip to that "nice icy land." Typically overenthusiastic and clueless, Tacky the penguin draws the lead part in a performance of "Goldilocks and the Three Bears," even though he doesn't quite understand what a "play" is. The big day arrives, and so does the audience, a raucous, ill-behaved bunch of penguin chicks from Mrs. Beakly's School. They pay no attention until Goldilocks appears, or rather "Tackylocks," as they call her. With a huge, blond wig and full costume, Tacky stumbles on stage, knocking over props; eats all of the porridge; and stacks the three chairs one atop the other to search for dessert. The audience cheers with delight when the chairs and Tacky crash to the floor. Worn out by now, he takes all the bedding and sinks into slumber in Baby bear's cozy bed. The other players do their best to carry on, but when they pull and toss the many covers and pillows, Tacky shouts "PILLOW FIGHT!" and the chicks join the players in the melee. Munsinger's watercolor illustrations perfectly capture the hilarity with body postures and facial expressions. Each picture is a story in itself, especially the arrival of the misbehaving audience. This silliness will delight Tacky's loyal fans and win a lot of new devotees, and they'll all be watching eagerly for the next adventure.-Marlene Gawron, Orange County Library, Orlando, FL

Tacky steals the show but not in the way he had hoped in Tackylocks and the Three Bears, the fifth title in the Tacky series by Helen Lester, illus. by Lynn Munsinger. This time around he joins up with penguin pals Goodly, Lovely, Angel, Neatly and Perfect to put on a play for Miss Beakly's class.
