Tacky is a penguin. He is a curious bird. His companions, Goodly, Lovely, Angel, Neatly, and Perfect, are going to be in the Winter Games. Will they win a medal?

Tacky is a funny penguin. ?He is an odd bird.? He tries his best to fit in. He is funny when he eats the baton in the speedskating race! He is always really strange compared to his companions. My favorite thing they say is ?YOU. . . YOU ATE. . . YOU ATE THE . . . YOU ATE THE BATON!? This story always makes me laugh. Tacky?s like me. He?s friendly to the other teams at the stadium. I?m friendly to the other teams when I play soccer.
