Roald Dahl’s eBooks, including Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, The Fantastic Mr. Fox, and The BFG, have been censored, revised, and automatically updated to the new version without readers’ consent by Puffin, a subsidiary of publisher Penguin Random House that has faced widespread pushback. Some of the changes include revising words that are related to gender, race and weight and removing references to ugliness and fatness. The Telegraph reported that for revising Dahl’s books Puffin worked closely with “Inclusive Minds,” an organization that describes itself as a “collective for people who are passionate about inclusion, diversity, equality and accessibility in children’s literature.” Among widespread criticism, UK Prime Minister Rishi Sunak said through his spokesperson, “It is important that works of literature, works of fiction, are preserved and not airbrushed.”
