A CHILDREN'S book inspired by a real-life story of two male penguins
raising a baby chick in New York's zoo has been deemed inappropriate by
state-run Singapore libraries.
THE conservative city-state's information minister, Yaacob Ibrahim, said on
Saturday he supported the decision to destroy all copies alongside two
other titles because the prevailing norms in Singapore support teaching
children about conventional families.
