Do censors have a chilling impact on children's literature? Mark West traveled across the country to talk with authors of censored books, publishers of children's books, and anti-censorship activists. In this expanded edition, the author continues his exploration of children's literature censorship in new interviews with, among others, Newbery award-winners Phyllis Reynolds Naylor and Katherine Paterson, both of whom have been involved in censorship cases centering on their books. These revealing and candid interviews are accompanied by a new introduction, an updated and expanded bibliography, and current biographical information.
