Based on true events. In Central Park Zoo two male penguins, Roy and Silo, did everything together. “They must be in love,” thought their keeper, Mr Gramzay. They copied the other penguin couples and built a nest of stones to sleep in every night. Roy and Silo longed for a family like the other penguins so Mr Gramzay placed an egg in the nest for them to care for. “Roy and Silo knew just what to do. They moved the egg to the centre of their nest. Every day they turned it, so each side stayed warm. Some days Roy sat while Silo went for food. Other days it was Silo’s turn to take care of their egg.” When the egg hatched the zookeeper named it Tango, “because it takes two to make a Tango.” Roy and Silo taught Tango to sing for food and how to swim. “At night the three penguins returned to their nest. There they snuggled together and, like all the other penguins in the penguin house, and all the other animals in the zoo, and all the families in the big city around them, they went to sleep.”
