Challenged Works

And Tango Makes Three

By Justin Richardson and Peter Parnell (2005)

Children’s book about penguins.


2006—A parent complained about this picture book for small children in the Calgary Catholic School District. The book tells the story of two male penguins raising a baby penguin in a zoo.
Objection—On religious grounds, the parent objected to the theme of homosexual parenting.

Update—The library asked the central office of the Religious Education Department to review the book. Later, the library removed the book from its collection.
