Parents in the Hillsboro elementary school district objected to "The Witches." Descriptive passages of children being mashed and other gory images, and the portrayal of witchcraft were the reasons for asking for the books removal. Parents gathered 87 signatures supporting the book's removal. The review board and school board chose to keep the book on the shelf.
