Joseph - it took place in China, had not said “Chang” meant little or noithng in Chinese, and things like that, then I think I wouldn’t have as much of an issue with it. If one is going to set “Little Red Riding Hood” in France and state that, yet the wolf says “Ciao!” and the says a croissant is a type of shoe–well, that would be very bothersome to a French person, wouldn’t it?Of course, all authors make mistakes and I don’t have a passionate hatred against Tikki Tembo; as I am sure there are people who are just as angry with the how I’ve embellished folktales in my own book(s). This article, to me, is more like shining a light on the line between creative license and cultural misrepresentation that authors have to be aware of. It’s a line that is hard to find and is different for each author, but it’s a line we must look for when we write.
