Banned Books 2020 – Twenty-Odd Ducks: Why, Every Punctuation Mark Counts!

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


A patron of the Lake Oswego (OR) Public Library complained about an image in the 32-page book about punctuation: a beheaded king continued talking and had blood around his neck. The patron said the book was inappropriate for children, and that she had challenged it in other libraries. No formal complaint was filed. Retained.

On These Pages

A Challenged book has been requested to be removed from a library, classroom, etc.
