U.K. publication of And Tango Makes Three

And Tango Makes Three will be hitting the shelves this year in the U.K. Richard Lea has written a balanced article about the controversial title for the Guardian. Lea talks to the authors about the genesis of the book and discusses the reactions to it in the U.S. Lea also notes,

"Educationalists and librarians are expecting a much more muted reaction when the book is published in the UK later this year. 'I often think there will be some sort of a reaction,' says the chair of the UK's Youth Libraries Group, Ian Dodds, 'but it doesn't come.'"

Well, that's a big surprise.
