I hope you all enjoyed Banned Book Week! I actually heard about it a little late so I’m playing catch-up right now, but I’m glad I got the chance to read up on this.

I was wrong! In fact, the first book on the “Most Frequently Contested” list when I started researching this was (brace yourself) Captain Underpants! Seriously? People are offended by a super hero in Y-fronts? I highly recommend browsing the rest of the list if you have the time. You may be surprised at what you see.

So, for those of you celebrating the week, do you have a favourite banned or contested book?
