Potty-talk superhero tops banned books list for second year in a row
The American Library Association has released its list of the most frequently banned books, in school districts across the country.
The king of children’s literary potty humor, “Captain Underpants” tops the list for the second year in a row.
Coming in second is Toni Morrison’s ‘The Bluest Eye’ which is banned for offensive language and sexual themes.
In third place ‘The Absolutely True Diary of a Part-Time Indian’. This novel is banned for drugs, alcoholism, sexual themes and racism.
In fourth place is’ Fifty Shades of Grey.’ You know why that was banned.
Rounding out the top 5 list is ‘The Hunger Games,’ which is banned for its religious viewpoint.
The Association puts together this list every year to celebrate the freedom to read and highlight the harms of censorship.
