Why was this book banned?

What do authors J.K. Rowling (Harry Potter series), Anne Frank (Diary of a Young Girl), Marc Brown (Arthur and Buster characters), and Mark Twain (The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn) have in common?  All these authors wrote books that have been challenged or banned from a library at some time.

The American Library Association observes Banned Books Week during the last week in September .  The observance calls attention to attempts to ban materials from libraries.  It also promotes the freedom to access ideas and information, even if the ideas and information might be unorthodox or unpopular.
