    We love Tacky, but not the format!

    My 4 year old and I love the Tacky books. However, the NookColor formatting/presentation is a big disappointment. While the display of the original Tacky book falls in line with most children's books, this and other Lester books are displayed upright with photo copy like images of the book art and text, followed by a second set of text. It makes it somewhat hard to read/follow. I wish I would have known this before purchasing. I would have chosen the paper copy over the digital version.

    Better on paper

    I love the Tacky the Penguin books, but they don't read as well on the NOOKcolor. You see a small version of the page surrounded by enlarged text from the page. So if you can read the text from the page, you get distracted by the enlarged text surrounding the page, and vice versa. The Read To Me books work much better on the NOOKcolor. I'll stick to those books next time I buy children's books on here. The story and art in this Tacky book are as sweet and funny as the others no matter which format you use.

    Tacky's still fun

    Our kids loved the original Tacky book and we read it nearly every night while they were growing up. We just found this new story, and now our grandson is loving Tacky and his "companions". it's a silly story, perfect for our 3 year old.

    Great book

    This book series never fails to make me laugh. My children and my students love the characters and the story. It has a wonderful lesson reminding people to celebrate the differences we all have. "Tacky was a strange bird, but a nice bird to have around." Absolutely wonderful!
