Banned Books, Part Four

Five More Books That Have Been Banned:
The Stupids (Series) by Harry Allard
The Outsiders by S.E. Hinton
The Joy Luck Club by Amy Tan
Are You There, God? It's Me, Margaret by Judy Blume
"Little Red-Cap" from Grimm's Fairy Tales, a version of Little Red Riding Hood.

“[I]t’s not just the books under fire now that worry me. It is the books that will never be written. The books that will never be read. And all due to the fear of censorship. As always, young readers will be the real losers.”—Judy Blume
