Hop on Pop


Hop on Pop


Dr. Suess

Why was it banned?

In one of the more amusing controversies, the Toronto Public Library was asked to remove this Dr. Seuss classic from its shelves. The explanation? Telling kids to "Hop on Pop" encourages unsafe violence against fathers. In fact, the same group that asked for the censorship of a book used to teach toddler phonics also demanded that the Toronto Library pay damages to any father injured due to literal minded young readers. Surprisingly, the claim did not pass the Library's committee, and Hop on Pop remains on shelves.
