I'm a bigger fan of the Brett Helquist drawings than of the story itself...but I don't see that as a reason to ban or even challenge this book.

Unfortunately, a lot of people seem to disagree. I'm not picking on Texas, it just happens that there's a lot of info about books that were banned/challenged in Texas available on the web, and I see that this book has been challenged in a number of school districts there over the years.

The author probably loves it because it's free publicity to increase book sales. :p
