First Danish Edition.

A Danish adaptation of Helga Fleischhauer-Hardt’s Zeig Mal! also published in English as Show Me! A Picture Book of Sex for Children and Parents. Show Me! is a graphic sex education book written in a frank style to encourage teaching “children to grow up proud and unashamed of their bodies and sexuality.” The publisher was accused of obscenity, with prosecutors arguing the book was child pornography. In all of the original cases judges ruled the book was not obscene, though the book continued to feature in US court cases relating to obscenity, child pornography, and the First Amendment, and was eventually pulled from shelves by the publisher “stating that though they believed Show Me! was not pornographic, they could no longer afford the legal expenses to defend it”. This Danish edition which had no such troubles, translates as ‘Do You Know That? Mads and Anne Talk Together’, uses Will McBride’s original photographs with text adapted by Birgit Kragh.
