This book is banned-Scarlet Books that contain magic are frequent targets of banning. Not so ironically, there’s an adventure in the beloved children’s series Magic Tree House  about a historical book burning, and the dangers of banning books.

The magic treehouse takes Jack and Annie back two thousand years to ancient China where they must find the original copy of an old legend before the Imperial Library is burned down by the evil Dragon King.
