Penguin to Also Publish Classic Roald Dahl Books After Rewrites Criticized

The British publisher of Roald Dahl ’s children’s books will release the classic versions of his stories along with updated editions rewritten in an effort to make them more acceptable to contemporary readers.

Seventeen of Mr. Dahl’s best-known books will be released in their unaltered form later this year as “The Roald Dahl Classic Collection,” Penguin Random House said Friday.
