Haley Finstad

The Lorax

Artist: Haley Finstad

Banned/Challenged Book: The Lorax

Reason for Banning: Banned for portraying the forestry/logging industry in a negative light.

Excerpt from Artist’s Statement: The reason I chose this book was because I’ve always really liked it. I love the illustrations and colors. I think that The Lorax should not have been banned. I actually think it teaches kids to go against cutting down trees. The reason I drew it like I did is because it’s like the Lorax is always watching you making sure you don’t cut down the trees.
