Tacky Goes to Camp by Helen Lester; reviewed by Declan F.
"Tacky Goes to Camp is one of the many Tacky books about a penguin who always does stuff wrong, but then it all works out in the end. In Tacky Goes to Camp, Tacky and five friends named, Goodly, Lovely, Angel, Neatly and Perfect go to camp. They pack all of the stuff you would need like a sleeping bag and a first aid kit. Tacky packs a tv and pizza. The other penguins wear neat uniforms and he wears a crazy uniform. He doesn't do the activities the right way and he even tips over the canoe with everyone in it. When they eat smores, he makes his with way too many marshmallows and graham crackers. He puts his sleeping bag on top of the leftover smores. Tacky tells a very scary story at the campfire about a bear and then the story becomes real! A bear comes and eats the picnic basket, the guitar and some logs. Then Tacky scares him away because all of the leftover smores made a scary face on his sleeping bag. The other penguins wake him up to tell him the bear is coming and he is stuck in his sleeping bag. He starts walking toward the bear and the scary face scares the bear away. I like this book because it is really funny. All of the Tacky books are really funny." - Declan F.
