In 2008, a parent in Lehigh Acres, Florida, sought to ban The Amazing Bone from the Sunshine Elementary School library because she objected to a scene in which robbers try to steal the main character (a pig) brandishing pistols and a dagger. Due in part to intervention by ABFFE and NCAC, a review committee voted to keep the book in the school. Officials worked with the parent to accommodate the family individually.
