Where's Waldo?

Artist: Asayiel Alhajeri

Banned/Challenged Book: Where’s Waldo?

Reason for Banning: Banned for inappropriate and seditious hidden imagery

Excerpt from Artist’s Statement: My name is Asayiel Alhajeri. I am in West Middle School, I am 12 years old. I chose the book Where’s Waldo? because it was always my favorite book when I was a kid. Hearing that it was banned made me sad and angry. The point of my drawing is that Waldo found the banned book and is now checking it out.

    This is wonderful. If I were a judge, this would have been among my very first choices. Brilliant!
