Banned Book: The Stupids

The Stupids are a family who do everything wrong...but it somehow works out in the end.

They sleep with their feet on the pillows, or sometimes under the bed while the cat and dog sleep under the covers. The same cat and dog who fix the lights after a blackout and drive the car.

These books were banned because they described families in a derogatory manner, encouraged children to be disobedient, and promoted low self esteem and negative behavior.

I thought these books were great! If I heard or read them as a kid, I didn't remember it at all. They made me chuckle a lot, reading them as an adult. I can see why kids love the craziness of this family.
