Tripping Over the Lunch Lady and Other Short Stories


After a challenge and three appeals, the York County School Board chose to keep the collection of short stories in the Magruder Elementary School library in Williamsburg (VA) despite claims that is offensive to children with loved ones serving in the military and inappropriate for elementary school students. A parent wanted the book removed because one of the short stories contained references to war, bombs and soldier casualties.

Held at Cabell County Public Library
