The author said the book ‘was intended to showcase diversity, equality, and non-violent conflict resolution’

Children’s publisher Scholastic announced they have immediately stopped the sale and distribution of a book over allegations of “passive racism.”

Scholastic announced last week they would immediately stop distribution of “The Adventures of Ook and Gluk,” a book originally published in 2010.
