Children’s literature made the headlines in a few interesting ways over the past week.

First came news that musician Lil Nas X, known for last year’s smash hit “Old Town Road,” is releasing a children’s book.

Called C is for Country, it’s a picture book that teaches the alphabet using Nas’s “signature genre-blending style,” according to his publisher.

C is for Country comes out January 5.

A book you won’t find on certain shelves, though? Books from J.K. Rowling and her pen name, Robert Galbraith.

Newsweek reports that the Australian bookstore Rabble Books & Games will no longer stock new titles and will phase out existing ones — yes, that includes Harry Potter — because of the author’s controversial comments about transgender people.

Profits from the sale of the existing Rowling/Galbraith stock will be donated to TransFolk of Western Australia.

You can read more from Rabble Books & Games in Newsweek and catch up on the Rowling transgender controversy in past Fussy coverage.
