Banned/Challenged Book: The Witches
Reason for Banning: The book has been thought of as sexist because of witches being the most evil creature and being only women and because of the violence throughout the book.
Excerpt from Artist’s Statement: The story revolves around the relation between the boy and his grandmother, his only living relative, and the idea that things are not always as they seem. The grandmother is extremely nice but on the outside is the big wall of a lady who is always smoking cigars while the witches look nice but underneath the wigs and gloves they’re hideous monsters.
