This website has a (loooong) list of books that have been banned in various places at various times. Some of the reasons are very strange:

Where's Waldo? Martin Handford. Little. Challenged at the Public Libraries of Saginaw, Mich. (1989), Removed from the Springs Public School library in East Hampton, N.Y. (1993) because there is a tiny drawing of a woman lying on the beach wearing a bikini bottom but no top. Yes, but did they find Waldo?

Haha :lol: that's such a stupid reason that ban a book or that book even. Someone has way too much time on their hands to look for that small little detail in the book that isn't noticable.
