It might not be wrong since it is up to the published, but it is just silly and is fodder for the right to rail against it

This is problematic since who sets the boundaries of what language is offensive?

This is wokeist over-reach. What is next: the Bible?

Every piece of art should be looked at from the perspective of its time and left in its original. It is up to the reader to decide whether they deem 'fat' to be offensive and if it is, then don't read the book.

Why perpetuate old role models and stereotypes when reading to children. Yes, every piece of art has its time and whoever wants to read the original is fine to do so. But as a means to teach young kids, why not give them an up-to-date option?

The publisher released two versions: the original one and a cleaned language one, so it is up to the customers to decide
