Sep 14, 2018 Medical & Health Care Comments Off on Children’s book sparks controversy at Taipei elementary school
Taipei, A popular children's book authored by British comedian, actor and writer David Walliams sparked controversy after its Chinese edition was taken off the library shelf at an elementary school in Taipei early this week due to a parent's protest against the book's content, which is about a boy who wears a dress.
The Chinese edition of the book, titled "The Boy in the Dress," was published by Taipei-based Linking Publishing in 2015. Lately it was withdrawn from a list of recommended books at Long An Elementary School in Taipei after a parent criticized the book for encouraging cross-dressing and demanded that it be taken off the library shelf.
Long An stopped lending the book Wednesday, announcing in a school notice that due to the protest, the book will not be lent out until a review to the controversy has been conducted.
