Tacky’s Christmas

November 23, 2011

By: Carisa Kluver

The Digital Media Diet

Tacky saves the day ... Christmas Day, that is ...

It's Christmas time in the nice icy land where Tacky and his fellow penguins celebrate the holiday season. They wrap presents, decorate their igloos and sing holiday songs. But Tacky gets stuck in an ice chimney, practicing to be Santa this year, along with lots of other holiday-themed shenanigans. When unexpected guests (the hunters) join the festivities, Tacky stands up to them. In the end the hunters join the penguins for a fishy feast in the spirit of Christmas goodwill. Solidly made OM Book from Oceanhouse Media.

This title is one of over two dozen titles briefly reviewed for a special post in our blog for the winter holidays, 2011.

All reviews are of the app, not the platform/device. Based originally on iPad versions. Minor technical details may vary.
