Artist: Isabelle Schmidtberger
Banned/Challenged Book: Coraline
Reason for Banning: Scary and inappropriate for age group
Excerpt from Artist’s Statement: This book is still one of the most memorable I have read. The blue circle represents the three ghost balls that help Coraline get out of the other world through the corridor. The eye behind the leaves portrays Coraline and how she has to sneak around the other world, back and forth through the corridor, trying not to seem suspicious around the other mother who wants to sew black buttons on her eyes.
