Artist: Joshua Battiest
Banned/Challenged Book: Brown Bear, Brown Bear, What Do You See?
Reason for Banning: Book was ordered removed from Texas schools because a state board of education member didn’t bother to research his decision when he confused the author with an obscure Marxist theorist of the same name.
Excerpt from Artist’s Statement: I chose Brown Bear, Brown Bear, What Do You See? because I wanted to draw the bear. In my picture I drew a bear standing next to a river and a tree. I put a honey pot in the picture because bears like to eat honey.
