Little Bill on the Most Banned Book List
Bill Cosby's children's book series Little Bill is one of the most banned books in America...
According to a list compiled by the American Library Association the Little Bill book series ranks no.9 on the 2016 list of books banned from public libraries and the only one on the list because of “criminal sexual allegations against the author.”
The no.1 book on the list, young adult novel “This One Summer,” was banned over its inclusion of LGBT characters, drug use and profanity.
The list is compiled based on 323 challenges reported to the ALA Office for Intellectual Freedom. About 10 percent of the reported challenges resulted in the removal of the book.
