Was Alice in Wonderland ever banned from school or countries?
I was just wondering because of some of the content which may have been consider to harsh in the 1800's such as the caterpillar smoking and the queens actions.
China did, of course. They believed that it was "disastrous" to have animals speaking human languages. That happened in 1931 and I believe it's still banned there. The only other place I've heard about was Woodsville High School in Haverill, New Hampshire in 1990. They simply didn't like the expletives they believed were found in the writing. I'm sure there have been other schools to ban the book, but not every minor decision in every minor school district finds its way to the internet.
That was an interesting answer and now I am curious to learn more about the school in New Hampshire that banned the novel in 1990 so I will look that up. Thank you.
Keep in mind, they referred to the book as "Through the Looking Glass". Alice was the Disney movie title.
