The Dirty Cowboy's Been Banned

This shows you how behind the times I am. I never noticed that The Dirty Cowboy (illustrated by the illustrious Adam Rex) was banned from a southern Texas elementary school by the name of W.C. Andrews Elementary. Now fess up, people. Who just read that sentence and misread the name of the school as V.C. Andrews Elementary? I can't be alone in this.

Thanks to Lisa Yee again for the heads up.

Guilty...Too bad there's not really a "V.C. Andrews Elementary." Although probably it would be a really weird school.

Thanks for mentioning this, Betsy. I am quietly proud, as is authorial author Amy Timberlake.

Oops! And to think that I've sent this in to third grade classes when mothers come in to ask what to read to their child's class when their guest reader of the week! (And I'd do it again, so there!)
