PUBLICATION HALTED FOR PROVOCATIVE CHILDREN’S BOOKS PARODY

“Publication has been halted for a provocative satire of children’s stories, “Bad Little Children’s Books,” which had been criticized by online commenters for poor taste and reinforcing racial and cultural stereotypes.Released in September by Abrams and written by Arthur C. Gackley, a pen name, the book used old-fashioned illustrations to make jokes about alcoholism, sexual abuse and murder. It also included references to Indians transmitting smallpox and a Muslim girl carrying a gift with a bomb ticking inside. A, editor, blogger and former librarian, Kelly Jensen, wrote last week that Abrams and Gackley “should be ashamed to publish and promote this kind of racist dreck. We don’t live in a world where humor like this is acceptable. (via The Associated Press)
