Artist: Parker Kranitz
Banned/Challenged Book: The Lorax
Reason for Banning: Banned for portraying the forestry/logging industry in a negative light
Excerpt from Artist’s Statement: I am very sad that The Lorax was banned because we read it in my elementary school. Then the next day I went to check out the book and they didn’t have it so I bought it. I brought it to my school and all the other kids tried to check it out but they couldn’t.
