And Tango Makes Three Reclaims ‘Most Challenged’ Library Book Crown

Woohoo! And Tango Makes Three has won back the top spot on the American Library Association’s Top 10 list of most-challenged books, which collects data from across the U.S. about juvenile parents registering complaints about kids actually reading books. (Reasons for the challenges: “Homosexuality, Religious Viewpoint, Unsuited to Age Group.”) Tango, the 2005 book from Peter Parnell and Justin Richardson about papa penguins Roy and Silo raising a baby together, scored the No. 1 spot in 2009 — its third straight year! But last year it lost the crown to teen girl book ttyl. At least, the gays are tops again! Five out of six ain’t bad. (And fret not: Twilight is still on the list, albeit at No. 10.)

      I checked surprisingly my county library here in South Carolina has this book.

      The Vancouver Public Library has 11 copies left of 16, 1 is being mended, of the 10 available, 5 are out, after all these years. If your local library doesn’t have it, ask them to get it. Librarians are generally strong defenders of the right to read.

      I have read it, it’s a cute book.
