‘Captain Underpants’ doesn’t sit well with some

“The potty humor of “Captain Underpants” children’s books and the mature exploration of race and family violence by Nobel laureate Toni Morrison in “The Bluest Eye” would seem to have little in common. But among some parents, educators and other members of the general public who worry about what books are stocked at their local libraries, the works fall into the same category — they’re just too offensive and should be restricted or removed from the shelves. The American Library Association published its annual “State of the Libraries” report Sunday, which included its list of works most frequently “challenged” last year at schools and libraries.” (via AP)
