Enid Blyton falls foul again and has to be reimagined
- The Magic Faraway Tree is being changed by the Tracy Beaker author for 2022
- The book will still see siblings Milo, Mia and Birdy head to the enchanted wood
- But comments from magical creatures will see them taught on gender equality
- Free speech campaigners say it should not be changed to be 'politically correct'
The Magic Faraway Tree has been tweaked by the Tracy Beaker author to make it supposedly fit for the 21st century.
The adventure book will still see siblings Milo, Mia and Birdy head to the enchanted wood and meet Moon-Face, Silky the Fairy and the Saucepan Man.
But comments from the magical creatures mentioning girls helping with domestic chores will see them educated on gender equality
The Magic Faraway Tree, which was first published in 1943, has also been edited to stamp out children adventuring on their own without supervision.
Mrs Wilson has reportedly tried to make the parents similar to today's, where they are anxious about what their youngsters are doing.
