And Tango Makes Three

It’s the last day of Banned Books Week! (but thankfully, it’s more like, books the red states tried to ban). This is really just an excuse for me to talk about the most complained about book this year: And Tango Makes Three, which may as well be called, “Gay Penguins are Cute, Baby Penguins are Even Cuter: Based on a True Cute Story.” Homosexual zoo animals might really do some damage to a kid’s development when instead they could be watching a team of forensic scientists solve a rape/murder on prime time.

Sliding in at #2 is Philip Pullman’s His Dark Materials trilogy. People get pretty touchy about the whole killing you-know-who thing. Apparently, Pullman enjoys his comfy spot on the Banned list. And well he should – Tango’s new bad-boy image resulted in a huge sales boost.
