Wax in our World
Wax as a topic for a medium public library juvenile nonfiction section has got to be one of the oddest ideas ever. Just so you all know, I have no bias against the subject of wax. Hey, wax as a part of a craft or in candle making, I would be all over that. Waxing as hair removal, I might be interested in that for my collection. (Okay, I might have to be sold on that idea. Can you imagine the illustrations when they get to discussing the bikini line?) What makes me laugh is the idea that somewhere a publisher was in a meeting saying “I think the kids are looking for a good book on wax”.
