Editorial Reviews

VOYA - Kellie Shoemaker
It has been ten years since this book was first published, and as the author acknowledges in the preface to the second edition, people have not stopped their attempts to ban children's literature. Protests against books containing profanity, sex, masturbation, divorce, racism, and "politically incorrect" issues have become more common and better organized. This book serves as a forum for authors, publishers, and anticensorship activists to express their views about the challenged books, parenting, childhood, and the effect these attacks have upon new books being written. The first edition contained candid interviews with such authors as Norma Klein, Judy Blume, Robert Cormier, and Roald Dahl, which have been included intact in the second edition, along with interviews of five new authors and two activists who have had recent battles with censors in their communities. Katherine Paterson and Phyllis Reynolds Naylor are among the additions, and their feelings regarding these conflicts are especially poignant. Even though I had never read the first edition of this book until I needed to review the second, I found the "old" interviews to be dated and irrelevant to the controversy that has erupted in recent years. While I understand the historical significance of including this material, the titles and authors being challenged today have changed the very nature of the battle. Since this issue is becoming more prevalent in our schools and libraries, a complete update would have made this book even more helpful for anyone concerned about censorship in their community. Index. Photos. Biblio.
Library Journal
This straightforward look at censorship of children's literature should be required reading by any school board member, librarian, teacher, or publisher. West interviews such authors as Judy Blume, Norma Klein, Nat Hentoff, and Roald Dahl; their publishers, who speak up about the effect of censorship on handling the books of controversial authors and the selection of new materials to publish; and the leaders of the anticensorship movement, who discuss their fight to see that children have the right to read a variety of materials. This delightfully one-sided look at the current round of censorship provides insight and inspiration for the reader to continue the battle. Joanne Troutner, Tippecanoe Sch. Corp., Lafayette, Ind.
