Well, I do consider a lot of books for young children as literature rather than pedagogical material, and nothing will change that. But I approve of fanfics so I'll try to simply consider this censoring as turning a book into a fanfic rather than butchering it. (Though as an author it makes me feel like turning over in my grave before it's dug.)


One has to wonder if you've ever seen a board book. Also, I can't even express how little you approval in this are means to me. Half the beauty of art is that the artist can't control the message after it leaves their hand. If an author can appreciate that a little, maybe they can grow to have a little respect for their readership.


Well, it can hardly be expected for everyone to agree on a subject such as censorship. I don't mean to show disrespect to anyone. I am simply stating my honest point of view, and as I said, it is an author's point of view, not a parent's.

By which I mean, I understand I might see things differently after I became a parent.

This thread has turned hostile and that's not cool. Everyone needs to be respectful to each other, even if you have a different opinion than they do. Just like we teach our kids, right?

With the forums closing, this is my last chance to apologize for having been arrogant in this thread. I should have done so in 2013, but better now than never?

My little piggies sometimes go ahead and eat roast beef and sometimes tofu or veggies depending on the mood. Maybe seitan. I might change that when he's older, I dunno.


First, cool to see an apology in the comment above. PPK is awesome forever.

Second I want to reply to my post. My son is older now and I haven't done little piggies in ages!! :(
