Thursday's card is "Charlotte's Web," by E.B. White, banned by a parents group in Kansas because "humans are the highest level of God's creation and are the only creatures that can communicate vocally. Showing lower life forms with human abilities is sacrilegious and disrespectful to God." ARTIST: Blake Nations. EXCERPT FROM ARTIST'S STATEMENT: I chose this book because I didn't know many banned books. When I was sketching, I saw a picture of the web with a word in it. With that, I immediately thought I would draw that with "BANNED" in the web.
