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
