The Lorax

Artist: Simon McCaffrey

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 picked The Lorax because it was a good childhood book and it’s funny. I don’t think the book should be banned because nothing is wrong with it. The illustrations are colorful.
