Challenged Works

Daddy’s Roommate

By Michael Willhoite


2005—During Freedom to Read Week, the Lethbridge Public Library displayed books that had been challenged in North America. The inclusion of Daddy’s Roommate in the display prompted one library patron to request the removal of the book from the library.

Objection—The complainant said that this fictional children’s book, which has a homosexual theme, was “not a proper role model for children.”

Update—The complainant did not pursue the challenge, so the book stayed in the library.
