Tintin Banned


Another book banned from children; It's hard to say if censorship is the answer. Perhaps it's easier to hide things than discuss these issues with kids.
Banning books, even partially, scares me. Books like Tintin are becoming historical pieces, and perhaps the context must be considered. It has some warts. At least they didn't rewrite it like they did Dr. Dolittle. I can think of other best-selling books that kids are encouraged to read that have similar issues yet are not censored... perhaps because they're not comic books, or maybe because the controversial issues are more cleverly masked.
