Another strange book banning attempt.

It's sad what people are protesting and trying to get pulled off of library bookshelves these day.

Mermaids afloat in Davis libraries despite protests

as someone who wishes she could draw fantasy images half as well as the artist being protested I'm glad that the descision that was made was that it should be up to the parentas discretion as to whether or not their kids could read this book. Illustrator James C. Christensen's work is amazingly well done, and I'm glad it is not getting pulled off of bookshelves.

That's beautiful art.

Sometimes, it's hard to remember that this country was founded by Puritans and in many places, those attitudes still remain. :(
