wow. what a cunt.

Oregon mom won't return 'Bunny Suicide' book

THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

HALSEY, Ore. -- One way or another, a Halsey woman promises to keep a popular cartoon book out of the Central Linn High School library.

Taffey Anderson says "The Book of Bunny Suicides" is not appropriate for anyone, but especially children. She inspected the book her 13-year-old son checked out of the library, and what she saw convinced her to never return it.

The 2003 book by British author Andy Riley is a collection of cartoons showing a rabbit attempting to end his life in bizarre ways. Anderson's son told her he checked it out because his friends said it was funny.

"It is a comic book, but that's not funny. Not at all," Anderson told the Albany Democrat-Herald newspaper. "I don't care if your kid is 16, 17, 18. It's wrong."

Anderson contacted Principal Julie Knoedler, who told her about the district's book-challenge policy.

Anderson plans to fill out the forms, but she's not taking any chances. Once the review is over, regardless of the outcome, she plans to burn it.

"They're not getting this book back," she said, adding that if the library replaces it: "I'll have somebody else check it out and I'll keep that one. I'm just disgusted by the whole ordeal."

Knoedler said Anderson must bring the book back for the committee to review it. If she refuses, the committee will have to buy another, at $13, and charge it to the family. If Anderson doesn't pay, her son will be banned from taking out any more books.

"That's really unfortunate, because he's obviously a kid who's interested in checking things out from the library," Knoedler said. "We won't put it back on the shelf. We'll put it out of circulation until the review is done."

Jean Townes, library consultant for the school district, said library books are ordered in batches, usually based on recommendations from established academic sites.

The book was on a young-adult reader list recommended by the American Library Association, she said, and she knows other school libraries in Oregon have purchased it.

The book, however, has been turned away by some school libraries. And in Shanghai, China, a bookseller pulled it last month after reports that several children had attempted suicide, with at least one boy dying.

Scott Keeney, the children's librarian for the Albany Public Library, said he doesn't think the book is appropriate for the children's section, but thinks it's OK on the adult shelf.

"I looked at a few of the cartoons and they were funny. Kind of mature, a little twisted and black. Some youth love that, some don't," he said.

Keeney compared Riley's drawings to the 1988 Simon Bond cartoon book, "101 Uses for a Dead Cat."

"Every family is different, and the range of community values in fiction, in movies, nonfiction, is so broad it's astonishing," he said. "Some families, you'd be astonished at what they allow or disallow on all sides of the open-information-for-children spectrum."

that is not how keeping a book from the library works...they just charge you for it. maybe even with interest. did any of you see the episode of seinfeld where he owes like thousands or something for a book he checked out years and years ago and forgot to return?

yeah, but she said she was going to burn it, which is destruction of city property
she also claimed that she would do it again if they put it back on the shelf

Why the fuck would you put that book in a kid's library?

How about some Calvin and Hobbes or good comic books (or *gasp* real books) instead of this bullshit aimed at giving 14 year old emo girls shit to giggle at and wierd out their parents?

If my kid had that book I'd be wierded out.

i agree... i really like to see kids that are kind of guarded from the world for their first few years.

its kind of like in Catcher in the Rye where dude gets ticked when he sees swear words written on public places... i dont know. its a personal thing.

hipster little kids that get to watch R rated movies  and swear all the time bum me out

I was playing COD:WOW & I told this one guy to stop being a little bitch. Well, I wasn't aware that this douche lived down the street and he busted into my friend's place & pulled a gun on us. The fucker didn't realize that he was outnumbered so we took his gun & threw his ass out.

Has this lady been to her local Blockbuster video?  They seem to have the same return policies.

hiding the evils of the world from kids only insures that they will freak the fuck out when they eventually discover the truth. honesty is key in child-rearing.

i couldnt disagree with you any more. sheltering kids leads to ignorant bigots like sarah palin.
