Artist: Devin Jacobs
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 am Devin Jacbos. I first starting drawing when I was in fourth grade (well, when I got into it). People compliment my drawings by saying I am an artists. I don’t consider this, I just see myself as a cartoonist. I chose the book Where the Wild Things Are because it’s the only book from my childhood that I remember, because of the goofy characters.
