I've always read banned books!

From Jen Robinson's page, I went to vote for my favorite banned book. Like many people, I chose Lois Lowry - but not The Giver. I chose Anastasia Krupnik, which has been one of my favorite books for about thirty years.

(It was a, admittedly strange, relief to find one book I really, really love on that list. Do I have bad taste in banned books?)

To give some idea of how much I love Anastasia Krupnik, I once, as an adult mind you, turned a piece of it into a monologue for an acting class. Can you guess which piece?
