ALA Direct: Seen Online

One last post on the Newbery Award winner, its subsequent controversy, and the ensuing discussions .... Today's American Libraries Direct (3/21/07) has a link in Seen Online to Carol Lay's comic strip, Waylay, featured in Salon. It begins:

"I ruffled some feathers recently by riffing on a New York Times article about an award-winning children's book. A few librarians had objected to the use of the word 'scrotum' and had promised to boycott the book." (A-mends, 3/21/07)

Here's the link: Carol Lay, A-Mends. It is possible to click past the registration and view the cartoon without much issue.

The end made me smile.
