Kids’ book about overweight girl stirs controversy

Washington Post – “A childrens author is in the center of a firestorm over his book about a bullied overweight girl who finds friends and happiness on the soccer field after slimming down. Paul Kramer, who self-publishes his kids’ books from his home in Hawaii, has drawn the ire of parents and public health specialists for his portrayal of an unhappy, obese 14-year-old in his book “Maggie Goes on a Diet,” which is due out next month.”
