Publisher cancels Wicca-themed children’s book series
The Stabenfeldt publishing house has decided not to publish the Sweep series of books in Finland, Sweden, and Norway, following an outcry over content related to the Wicca religion.
The fantasy books were to have been targeted at children aged 9 to 13 in Finland, Norway, and Sweden. The first part had already been sent to the printer.

Christian Democratic Party MP Leena Rauhala submitted a written question to the government on Friday, stating the view that the books should not be published in Finland.
