10 Surprisingly Banned Books
Can you believe Lord of the Rings was banned "outside of a church in Alamogordo, N.M., in 2001 because it was viewed as "Satanic." ?
James and the Giant Peach???? It's one of my most favourite books and it was banned just because the main character, James, was disobedient and violent. What, our kids can't be perfectly obedient and mindless robots enslaved by the wills of others! This book is FREEDOM!
And then. The Bomb. The global phenomenon that is Harry Potter: All the books are banned?!
"One of the most surprising banned books sits at the No. 1 spot on the ALA list. It's not even a book. It's the entire Harry Potter series by J.K. Rowling. The Harry Potter series is to teens what "Star Wars" was to an entire generation of now-40-somethings. The series has been challenged for occultism, Satanism, violence, being anti-family and having religious viewpoint. The series is No. 1 on the ALA's most challenged book list for 2000 to 2009. "
