The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time
Banned from the ninth-grade honors-level English reading list in the Wilson County (TN) schools due to offensive language. The book was removed from libraries and the possesion of students soon after. The decision was later rescinded on advice of the school board attorney due to possible onflict with a board policy.
Removed from the Lake Fenton (MI) summer reading program after parents complained about itd "foul language." The book is about an authistic child who investigates the death of a neighborhood dog.
Challenged at the Galveston (TX) County Reads Day because the book could "pollute" young minds.
