Today’s Book Bloggery

It is an interesting day on The Guardian’s Book Blog.

Firstly we have Lindesay Irvine asking his readers what children’s books they would like to ban. Thankfully most of the responses seem to be tongue in cheek, but not all of them.

Also Ned Beauman holds forth on the failure of the Minx comic line. Apparently US attempts to imitate manga were too safe and the kids prefer the Japanese originals: bishonen, sex changes and all. Why am I not surprised.

    hmm, the Minx bit reminds me of how bowdlerizations have affected anime as well…but really, if kids see grownups condescending fingerprints all over anything it is seriously uncool.
