Dear Louie,

I’ve been wanting to read To Kill a Mockingbird by Harper Lee for a while. When I went to my school library to check it out, I found that the school board has banned it. I’m upset about this because I feel that the book covers important issues such as race and respect that are still relevant today. What do I do now? Should I fight to get it back, or should I leave it be? Please help me Louie.

Sincerely,

Mockingbird Victim

 

Dear Mockingbird Victim,

Oh my, that would be like my owner banning my favorite chew toy! I am so sorry that this is happening to you and your school district. If they’re going to ban books they might as well burn them all like in the novel Fahrenheit 451 by Ray Bradbury.

I think that To Kill a Mockingbird covers important issues and is a wonderful book that everyone should read at least once in their lives. Have you tried speaking to the members of the school board about how you feel about it being banned? Sometimes, it seems as if they don’t even consider asking the teens about their opinion on the book. My owner does that to me with my toys sometimes and it drives me crazy to the point that I leave a special surprise for him in his room. If you do talk to the school board and they still believe in banning it, you’ll always have the public library to go to!

Sincerely,

Louie
