Children's Book Moves to Nonfiction Section After Parents Complain

March 4, 2006 - Posted at 12:46 p.m. CST

SAVANNAH, Mo. (AP) _ A book about two male penguins that raised

a baby penguin has been moved from the children's section to the

nonfiction section of two library branches in northwest Missouri

after parents complained about homosexual undertones.

The children's book, ``And Tango Makes Three,'' is based on a

true story of two male penguins in New York City's Central Park

Zoo. The penguins, named Roy and Silo, adopted an abandoned egg in

the late 1990s.

Parents raised concerns with the Rolling Hills' library in

Savannah. The book has since been put in the non-fiction section at

the Savannah library and at another branch near St. Joseph.

Barbara Read, Rolling Hills' director, says there's less of a

chance the book will ``blindside'' someone in the non-fiction

section.
