Hungry for a late night intellectual snack? We’ve got a few food books to munch on…

What would you add to the list?

This year’s Banned Books Week is officially September 21-27, but we Seattle-ites have been celebrating banned and challenged books all month long. Some of our favorite books happen to be frequently challenged titles (funny how that happens, isn’t it?), and we love a good opportunity to celebrate both freedom of speech and a great story. See below for some of the banned/challenged books we’re sharing in our Children’s Book department as well as the reasons they were banned. (Also check out the American Library Association website for more frequently banned titles by decade.)

- And Tango Makes Three by Peter Parnell and Justin Richardson. Reasons: Homosexuality, unsuited for age group.

- In the Night Kitchen by Maurice Sendak. Reasons: nudity, offensive language, sexually explicit.

- Captain Underpants (series) by Dav Pilkey. Reasons: Offensive language, anti-family content, violence, unsuited for age group.

- Bone (series) by Jeff Smith. Reasons: Political viewpoint, racism, violence.

- Julie of the Wolves by Jean Craighead George. Reasons: unsuited to age group, violence.

- The Golden Compass (His Dark Materials trilogy) by Philip Pullman. Reasons: political viewpoint, religious viewpoint, and violence.

- ttyl by Lauren Myracle. Reasons: offensive language; religious viewpoint; sexually explicit; unsuited to age group.

- Athletic Shorts by Chris Crutcher. Reasons: homosexuality and offensive language.

- The Absolutely True Diary of a Part-Time Indian by Sherman Alexie. Reasons: Drugs/alcohol/smoking, offensive language, racism, sexually explicit, unsuited to age group.

Judging by this, I think I may have accidentally read more banned books than unbanned books in my childhood.

How the fuck did ‘The Hungry Caterpillar’ end up a banned book?

Literally what i was about to ask.

“What the hell are they talking abo- oh.”
