Banned Books 2019 – Willy the Champ

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


This children’s book is about a chimp who struggles with sports, then accidentally defeats a bully and becomes a hero. A patron complained to an Oregon public
library that “Violence [was] used to solve problems with bullies for early readers. Violence celebrated.” Retained.
