Description


"And Tango Makes Three" is the bestselling, heartwarming true story of two penguins who create a nontraditional family.
At the penguin house at the Central Park Zoo, two penguins named Roy and Silo were a little bit different from the others. But their desire for a family was the same. And with the help of a kindly zookeeper, Roy and Silo get the chance to welcome a baby penguin of their very own.
Selected as an ALA Notable Children's Book Nominee and a Lambda Literary Award Finalist, this joyful story about the meaning of family is a must for any library ("School Library Journal," starred review).
