Artist: Taryn Balderidge
Banned/Challenged Book: The Lorax
Reason for Banning: Banned for portraying the forestry/logging industry in a negative light
Excerpt from Artist’s Statement: For Banned Books Week I chose to draw The Lorax because I love how Dr. Seuss books are very creative. They have very detailed illustrations and it uses lots of colors. I used to read Dr. Seuss books a lot and The Lorax was one of my favorites. The picture I drew just represents a scene in the book.
