In the Night Kitchen.
Harper & Row, Publishers.
Summary from Barnes & Noble:
The story of Mickey's nighttime adventure in the baker's kitchen is "a highly original dream fantasy (with) deliciously playful illustrations (and a) chantable, easily remembered text.
Reason(s) for Banning:
- Challenged for nudity and offensive language (Reader's Advisory - Banned Book List 2008)
- Due to the nudity, I wouldn't be able to use this book in a classroom... The nudity though, is somewhat discreet... nothing that a child wouldn't expect... it's not drawn 100% anatomically correct, and there is a chance that children wouldn't even pick up on it.
- I personally didn't find any offensive language in the book... if you did, please enlighten me!
