Artist: Shayna Phillips
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 saw the sleeping monster in the book and it reminded me of how much I liked it. I drew monster in a prison because when I think of banned books I think of them in a jail cell.
