Reading a Challenged Book

Well... since the kid was sick, I didn't get a good enough photo to submit to the Freedom to Read contest, but I still got a few shots of her reading Ouch! by Natalie Babbitt.

The book is based on a classic tale from the Brothers Grimm and this retelling treats both Hell and The Devil with a certain amount of humour and irreverence. Naturally someone took offence and officially challenged this award-winning picture book.
