I actually don't think I've seen it in reading lists much at all. It's not on the Canadian curriculum, at least not MB or SK.

It's a terrible book. If I saw it in someone's reading list, I would probably write them off on that basis alone... I can be pretty superficial sometimes.
As I am sure any cat owner will be able to tell you,
someone else putting you in a box is entirely different
from getting into a box yourself.
