I had to laugh that the comic book Bunny Suicides was challenged at a school in the United States. Actually I am surprised that it was at a school, but I can see many kids loving it. Especially boys. This delightful little comic book shows images of bunnies trying their best to commit suicide. Suicide is a dark subject, I’ll admit that, but for some reason seeing these cute looking bunny rabbits finding different ways to do it is funny. My favorite is an comic where there is a line of bunnies outside an airplane, waiting for their chance to jump through one of the engines (propellers? – I don’t know planes well). The image does not stop there, but continues as out the other side of the engine are pieces of the bunnies. None of this is color though.
The parent does see that these are comic, but she does hope that the library will hold the book behind the circulation desk and allow only highschoolers to check it out. That may be appropriate, but I can see that junior high boys would love it too.
