Reason for challenge: anti-family, homosexuality, political viewpoint, religious viewpoint, unsuited for age group, "promotes homosexual agenda"

In the zoo there are all kinds of animal families. But Tango's family is not like any of the others. This illustrated children's book fictionalizes the true story of two male penguins who became partners and raised a penguin chick in the Central Park Zoo.
