Another great site: The Forbidden Library – Banned and Challenged Books. Find out why some tried to censor such shocking material as 1984 (“pro communist”), Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland (“portraying animals and humans on the same level”), Anne Frank (“a real downer”), The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe (because it doesn’t adhere to “Christian values”?!?) and The Lorax, by Dr. Seuss (“criminalizes the foresting industry”).
Yup, you guessed it folks. It’s an American site. “Land of the free!” (Those will be my last quotation marks for today, I assure you.)
