All the way up at 4 on the list of Top 100 Banned/Challenged Books: 2000-2009, And Tango Makes Three was also the Number One* challenged book between 2006 and 2010 (*actually number 2 in 2009, second to Lauren Myracle's ttyl series). The challenges have been based on "anti-ethnic, anti-family, homosexuality, religious viewpoint, and unsuited to age group."
