Is this for real?

I feel like I have to go to a bookstore and look for myself, to make sure this isn't some bizarre hoax:


Below are two photographs of Clement Hurd, the illustrator of Goodnight Moon . The image on the left is the original photograph that has adorned the back of the trade hardcover edition of Goodnight Moon for over 50 years. The image on the right is the new, altered version of the photograph, in which the cigarette that once resided in Clement Hurd's hand has been digitally removed by the publisher.

HarperCollins, you are LAME.  Lame lame lame lame lame.
