After further reading and consideration, the editor wishes to post a retraction on the recommendation of some books listed in Issue 3 in the “16 years and up” category:
The Thirteenth Princess by Dianne Zahler due to very sensationalistic fairy-tale violence and a brief description of childbirth.
Prisoner of Zenda by Anthony Hope due to a Protestant receiving Holy Communion (sacrilege) and a lax attitude concerning what appears to be a form of adultery disguised as platonic chivalry (this may be an incorrect perception?). Editing may be able to correct these issues if parents approve of the rest of the story.
Parents of children wishing to read Tolkien’s The Silmarillion may also wish to edit “The Tale of Turin” due to mentions of nudity.
