The Castle in the Attic
By Elizabeth Winthrop
Challenged at the Medway, Maine schools in 1995 because the book uses swear words and deals with sorcery.
When William’s housekeeper leaves, she gives him a model, highly realistic castle. William can’t wait to play with it, but when he picks up the silver knight, the toy comes to life. William enters the world of the castle to help save the court there from a great evil.
Some l believe all magic and magical doings are inherently evil and as such should be kept from children. People also do not wish to encourage childoksren to swear. They believe that if a child reads about a child swearing in a book, then that child will want to emulate the character.
