Mother upset over mouse-themed stories for children.

If you need a laugh, head on over to Library Voice, where today’s post is about an angry parent upset over all the children’s books featuring mice. The mother is irate because she says that mice are disease carriers. She may have a point–but does she not trust that children know what fantasy is? Or that she can’t have a discussion with her child, if she’s really so concerned? The books that she got upset about are great books. It’s incredible what people will get riled up about.

Of course, this seems to segue into censorship, which isn’t really a laughing matter–but sometimes you just have to laugh.

About Cheryl Rainfield

I write the books I needed and couldn't find as a teen. I write teen fiction--paranormal fantasy and gritty realistic fiction. I'm the author of SCARS (WestSide Books, 2010) #1 ALA QuickPicks, and Governor General Literary Award Finalist, HUNTED (WestSide Books, Oct 2011), STAINED (Harcourt, 2013), The Last Dragon (HIP Books, Sept 2009), and Walking Both Sides (HIP Books, 2011).
