Banned Books 2019 – The True Adventures of Esther the Wonder Pig

Marshall University does not ban books! The information is provided to let people know what has been banned/challenged elsewhere.


Esther was an alleged mini-pig who eventually topped 650 pounds. Her “two dads” decided to move from their small apartment to a farm, now an animal rescue sanctuary. The picture book was originally rejected by a combined elementary school and public library in Oregon as “inappropriate.” After school administrators reviewed the library’s collection development policy and a Request for Reconsideration form, the title was retained.
