Tansy (tansbradshaw) Hi there,

I am doing a comedy show and have a general theme of why I should NOT be allowed to be a children's librarian.

I am after books that could be used as part of a 'now that I am older this could be considered wrong' it does not nessacarily have to be banned books infact the more that weren't considered contraversial would be better.

Examples are:

The Cat in the Hat by Dr. Seuss
Because we don't know whether it was a pedophillie in their dressed up

and

The Very Hungry Caterpillar by Eric Carle
Because it could be used as a part of a theme for overcoming anorexia.

I am aware that I may offend some people however that is not my aim. I just want to make people think.

Fish is Fish: Be content with what you have; stay down there in the lower classes and stop trying to reach above your station.
