Artist: Cameron Wood
Banned/Challenged Book: Where the Wild Things Are
Reason for Banning: Banned due to objections to the psychoanalytical interpretations and promoting witchcraft and supernatural elements
Excerpt from Artist’s Statement: I chose Where the Wild Things Are for my book. I chose this book because I love the pictures and I had ideas to incorporate them in my drawing. My drawing represents banned books because it shows the “wild thing” burning the book which represents a library banning a book such as Where the Wild Things Are.
