    Abstract

    The notion of the "taboo" in children's literature and what is seen as inappropriate for children is an active and continuous debate among scholars, writers and guardians. Academics such as Dr Kimberly Reynolds observes how the subject of youth fiction is a cornucopia of juxtaposing beliefs, with each cultural text being praised or critiqued for its content.
