See Gus Read.

Gus is reading a book.

Read, Gus! Read!

What book is Gus reading?

Oh, oh! Gus is reading a banned book!

Bad, Gus! Bad!

Gus should not read banned books!

Banned books are bad.

Bad, banned books. Bad!

Banned books might make you think in ways book banners think you should not think!

That sort of thinking is bad.

Bad, bad thinking. Bad!
