What's Your Favorite Banned Book?

Yep, it's that time of year again: Banned Books Week. So, which banned/challenged book is your favorite?

My top 5:
  1. To Kill a Mockingbird
  2. A Wrinkle in Time
  3. James and the Giant Peach
  4. A Light in the Attic
  5. The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn
"When he was nearly thirteen, my brother Jem got his arm badly broken at the elbow.... When enough years had gone by to enable us to look back on them, we sometimes discussed the events leading to his accident. I maintain that the Ewells started it all, but Jem, who was four years my senior, said it started long before that. He said it began the summer Dill came to us, when Dill first gave us the idea of making Boo Radley come out."
--To Kill a Mockingbird

I love the beginning of this book, the end of this book, the all of this book.

Also, an interesting banned books idea...
This library put books in paper bags with labels that state the reasons the book was challenged, and cutouts.
