As Varoom does the last edits on our upcoming piece in Varoom 29 on Challenged Children’s Book, we hear this week that one of our featured books, And Tango Makes Three, is again riding high in the 2014 top 10 of frequently challenged or banned books in the USA. See LA Times article
And Tango Makes Three is the story of two male penguins who raise a chick at New York Zoo. Illustrator Henry Cole gives his views in Varoom 29, along side illustrators and writers of several other children’s books ‘challenged’.
‘A challenge is a formal written complaint filed with a library or school requesting that a book or other material be restricted or removed because of its content or appropriateness.’ American Libraries Association
