A parent objected to this Japanese-language graphic novel in an Oregon school, believing that it promoted bullying. The patron offered to preview books in Japanese to determine appropriateness of the school. Four Japanese language teachers did not share the parent’s concerns, which the librarian communicated to the parent. A formal challenge process was initiated. The status of the graphic novel is not known.
