An Absence of Scrota…your guide to quality literature…

At the risk of beating a dead horse, here’s a couple more scrotalicious links. PUBLIB pointed the way to an A Post by Neil Gaiman, whose unconditional love for librarians was testeed by a librarian who decided kids shouldn’t read The Higher Power of Lucky because of the use of the word “scrotum”.

I’ve decided that librarians who would decline to have a Newbery book in their libraries because they don’t like the word scrotum are probably not real librarians (whom I still love unconditionally). I think they’re rogue librarians who have gone over to the dark side.

He also points the way to The Gelflog where they point to a few other scrotalicious books for tweens and below that must go as well.

Always remember Blake’s Golden Rule: If you don’t like it, it’s no good for anyone.
