Question
Shalom Harav, what’s your psak/opinion what to be done regarding CW children books please? Ty Chazak Baruch
Answer
My personal opinion is, at least for the time being, as long as his name is associated with such negative things, his books should definitely be stowed away, so that your children will not be confused, and will receive a clear message that there is no way to condone such behavior. In several years, after his name and the accusations will be forgotten and unknown to your coming children and grandchildren, the stories will be seen as "Children Speak" and not of that author, and they don't have "eternal tum'ah".
