Bad Book 'not good enough' - Books - www.theage.com.au

Andy Griffiths has got himself into the bad books of some children's booksellers and conference organisers with the latest title by him and his illustrator Terry Denton, The Bad Book, previously mentioned in a blogged report...

Children's bookseller Kate Colley, of Bloomin' Books at Caringbah in Sydney, said: "I'm not a prude, and a lot of the book is fun. But after reading the whole thing, I couldn't sleep."

Ms Colley cited the stories of a grandmother eating her own excrement, a child setting a cat on fire, and a mother sending her child across a six-lane road to be run over by a truck.

"This is the first book I've refused to stock in 15 years," she said. "But some of us have to take a stand . . . I don't think children need this, with so much violence going on."
