Description

You're Never Too Young to Fight Censorship!

In Ban This Book by Alan Gratz, a fourth grader fights back when From the Mixed-Up Files of Mrs. Basil E. Frankweiler by E. L. Konigsburg is challenged by a well-meaning parent and taken off the shelves of her school library. Amy Anne is shy and soft-spoken, but don't mess with her when it comes to her favorite book in the whole world. Amy Anne and her lieutenants wage a battle for the books that will make you laugh and pump your fists as they start a secret banned books locker library, make up ridiculous reasons to ban every single book in the library to make a point, and take a stand against censorship.

Ban This Book is a stirring defense against censorship that's perfect for middle grade readers. Let kids know that they can make a difference in their schools, communities, and lives!

"Readers, librarians, and all those books that have drawn a challenge have a brand new hero.... Stand up and cheer, book lovers. This one's for you." --Kathi Appelt, author of the Newbery Honor-winning The Underneath

" Ban This Book is absolutely brilliant and belongs on the shelves of every library in the multiverse."--Lauren Myracle, author of the bestselling Internet Girls series, the most challenged books of 2009 and 2011

"Quick paced and with clear, easy-to-read prose, this is a book poised for wide readership and classroom use."-- Booklist

"A stout defense of the right to read." -- Kirkus Reviews

"Gratz delivers a book lover's book that speaks volumes about kids' power to effect change at a grassroots level." --Publishers Weekly
