"Gay" penguin book back on shelves for now

A book about two male penguins who raised a baby penguin will not face a formal review from Charlotte-Mecklenburg Schools of North Carolina, school officials said. The book, And Tango Makes Three, was based on a true story of two male penguins at New York City's Central Park Zoo, who paired up and hatched an adopted egg. It was removed from four elementary school libraries in the district following some parents protests. However the school district superintendent said procedure was not followed correctly, so the books are back on the shelves pending further protest.
