Canada kids books not into seal-eating (or hugging)

January 30, 2005
» by in: pre-wp

[via places for writers] Children’s writer Andri Snaer Magnason may be an award winning author in his home country of Iceland, but in Canada, his book The Story of the Blue Planet goes just too far:

When Magnason recently presented a manuscript to a Canadian publisher based in Toronto, they offered to publish the book provided he remove references to grilling a seal that had been hunted for food, as well as a scene where a grateful child hugs and kisses two other children who saved his life.

I’m not a big meat-eater myself, but when kids in Canada are offered this and this and this, then I think there is room for a little chowing down on seals and the occasional hug.
