Board will decide on book complaints: Two books may be removed from elementary libraries
Statesman Journal (Salem)
The golden book of the mysterious by Jane Werner Watson, The beast of Monsieur Racine by Tom Ungerer
parents, Salem-Keizer School Board, Scott Elementary School
The golden book of the mysterious was removed from elementary school libraries and sent to middle school libraries.
Parents complained about two books contained in elementary school libraries; Salem-Keizer school board members were set to review them. Parents objected to the subject matter contained within "The Golden Book of the Mysterious: Witchcraft, Sorcery, and Palm Reading." Another parent objected to illustrations contained within "The Beast of Monsieur Racine."
