Forbidden books for children

I found this list today while I was doing some genuine libeery work and found it inappropriately hilarious. Could be the early Christmas shopping that I did for a certain 5 year old today, or the fact that a close member of my urban family is about to squeeze a screaming, slimy head from between her legs...either way, my mind has been on kid lit lately. So here you go:

Index Liberis Prohibitorum
- Index of Forbidden Books for Children

Curious George and the High-Voltage Fence
Daddy Drinks Because You Cry
Dad's New Wife Robert
Eggs, Toilet Paper, and Your School
