“Is that burning literature I smell?”: Bunny Edition

The Book of Bunny Suicides

The Book of Bunny Suicides

A woman in Oregon has confiscated the copy of The Book of Bunny Suicides her son checked out of the school library, and says she plans never to return it, not even to allow a committee to review her complaint against its appropriateness. Because she plans to burn it

Ms. Anderson, the Official Arbiter of Appropriate, has written, “This book has absolutely no curriculum value to anybody”, including, apparently, the reluctant readers it was intended to entice

If she doesn’t bring it back to the committee for review or pay for a replacement, her son will be banned from checking anything else out of the library. But his illiteracy is surely a small price to pay for freedom from impossibly ingenious cartoon rabbits.
