A Brazilian judge has ordered bookstores to wrap and seal copies of "Fifty Shades of Grey" after seeing children reading it in stores.

The Associated Press reported authorities originally removed eleven copies of the erotic trilogy from two bookstores because the content was unsuitable for minors.

Then, two days after Judge Raphael Queiroz Campos' order, "the books were back on the shelves, but sealed and out of reach of minors" as the court stated, the AP wrote.

The erotic trilogy "Fifty Shades Freed," "Fifty Shades of Grey" and "Fifty Shades Darker" by British author E.L James are bestsellers in both Brazil and the US.

CNN reported "50 Shades" is now being made into a movie. Actress Krysten Ritter, star of ABC's "Don't Trust the B-- in Apt. 23," is the latest actress to be talked about for the role of the young submissive, Anastasia Steele.
