Puffin UK has announced it is to release Roald Dahl books without any changes, following major criticism. The publisher’s decision to amend the language used in the classic children’s author’s books was universally slammed, with Prime Minister Rishi Sunak condemning the review. The latest editions were to be edited to remove potentially offensive language.
The 17 titles will be available later this year and will include archive material relevant to each of the stories by the much-loved but controversial children’s author. The classic collection will sit alongside the newly-released Roald Dahl books for young readers, which have been rewritten to cater for the sensitivities of modern audiences.
