Reviews

"A touching and delightful variation on a major theme."--Maurice Sendak
"This wonderful story of devotion is heartwarming proof that Mother Nature knows best."--Harvey Fierstein
"Charming! And Tango Makes Three proves that all kinds of love can create a family."--Wendy Wasserstein
"A little miracle for children. Funny, tender, and true, the story of Tango will delight young readers and open their minds."--John Lithgow
*"Cole's pictures complement the perfectly cadenced text...Those who share this with children will find themselves returning to it again and again...for the two irresistible birds at its center and for the celebration of patient, loving fathers who 'knew just what to do.'"--Booklist, starred review
*"[A] hearwarming tale. Older readers will most appreciate the...larger theme of tolerance at work in this touching tale."--Publishers Weekly, starred review
*"This joyful story about the meaning of family is a must for any library."--School Library Journal, starred review
*"In this true, straightforwardly (so to speak) delivered tale, two male chinstrap penguins at New York City's Central Park Zoo bond, build a nest and--thanks to a helping hand from an observant zookeeper--hatch and raise a penguin chick...Readers may find its theme of acecptance even more convincing for being delivered in such a matter of fact, non-preachy way."--Kirkus Reviews, starred review
"A charming and adorable story that proves love isn't confined by a set of rules of what's right or wrong. Love is Love."--Nathan Lane & Devlin Elliot
"While this could introduce a discussion about various kinds of families, it's also a cheerful and endearing animal story that should please any aficionado of the zoo's penguin enclosure."--BCCB
"Tango Makes Three rises above the message it carries and becomes the rarest of birds, a 'message book' that's also a really good story."--NYTBR
