Roald Dahl's books often come with an element of controversy. In the early 1990s a public school system In Texas banned James and the Giant Peach because the school district's superintendent argued that the books were age inappropriate based off the use of curse words in the book such as ass. If you are a collector of banned books, then this is one you want on your shelf.
