Artist: Maxwell Ford
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 because my mom read it to me as a kid. It made a big impact on my life and the main character’s name is my name (by the
way my name is Max).
