On my previous blog I posted the ALA (American Library Association) Top 100 Most Frequently Challenged Books. My friend Leah happened to notice that #88 is "Where's Waldo".

You may wonder why it even made the list, and here is the answer.

In the beach scene on page 2 of the first book there is a little boy poking a shovel into the back of a topless tanning woman. As she lurches upward it shows one of her breasts. That's it.

The woman was covered up for the 1997 special edition release.

I've got the original copy of the book so I found it and scanned it.
