Banned Books 2021 – 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.


This nonfiction picture book concerns a supposed mini-pig purchased by a gay couple. As the pig grows (and grows and grows), the couple finally moves to the country and starts an animal rescue farm. An Oregon public library patron was concerned about “homosexual content” and “how it would impact young readers.” Retained.
