In 1931, General Ho Chien banned children's book "Alice in Wonderland" in China's Hunan Province. The reason for the ban was that in animal-tale characters were speaking. "This is unacceptable - to inspire children to the idea that animals have the same intellectual level as the people!" - Outraged the general said. Fortunately, this stupid ban is now lifted and Hunan children can freely read this wonderful book.
