Tank Girl Starts Third Grade
It seems that the school ordered a book called Tank Talbot, a Guide to Girls. The book they received from the publisher did have two of the same words in its title, but that's where the similarity ends.
WSVN-TV has video of how the station reported the story and a written piece for those who prefer reading their news over having someone do it for them.
What concerns me about this story is the number of incompetent people who had their hands on this book before it made it into the little hands of one lucky/unlucky third grade student. Do you mean to tell me that no one noticed that this book had a different title, or a different cover...or that it was inappropriate for an elementary school library? Really, Hebron Heights Elementary School? Really?
