Nobody likes me, everybody hates me, I'm gonna eat some worms

It's Banned Books Week in the US, and here's the American Library Association's list of the 100 most frequently challenged books. I can understand people's objections to certain themes (Madonna's "Sex", #19), but I can't see what's objectionable about Thomas Rockwell's "How to Eat Fried Worms" (#98).




How To Eat Fried Worms was one of my favourite childhood books! I'd forgotten it existed until you mentioned it. Have to go dig it out now. (I got it from the library, so I guess it can't have been challenged much here.)
