Penguin bondage book found in Kaiapoi pre-school

A picture book which depicts penguins in bondage gear with whips has prompted the Ministry of Education to contact a Kaiapoi preschool after the book was discovered on its shelves.

Mother of three Lana McLean found the book last month when she visited Sovereign Star Preschool and Nursery with her 3-year-old daughter. She had been the previous day with her husband to look at the pre-school.

“I was there looking at it as a prospective preschool for my  child,  when other kids there brought the book over to me from the shelf and asked me to read it. I looked at it and said, ‘go choose another one’.”

The book, Gus and Waldo’s Book of Love, is written by Massimo  Fenati  and is intended as an adult picture book, according to its reviews on Amazon.

McLean said she was shocked by the book and took photographs of some pages to show her husband. After talking it over with him that night she returned to the pre-school the next day and laid a complaint with the manager,  Brooke Philpott.

“I said to  her, ‘ I think you have some inappropriate reading material on your shelf. It’s not suitable for toddlers – in fact I don’t even think it’s suitable for my 15-year-old’.”
