Banned/Challenged Book: Scary Stories to Tell in the Dark

Reason for Banning: Unsuitable for age group and violence

Excerpt from Artist’s Statement: Scary Stories to Tell in the Dark is emblematic of the whole Scary Stories series. I decide to show readers’ involvement with the book rather than directly interpret any of the books’ content. The girl on the right with a look of horror on her face reflects the many comments I have read on the Internet by now-adults who vividly recall experiencing the book when they were kids.
