Could they have got World Book Day and World Dictator Day all confused? Surely Mein Kampf not widely read in primary schools?

Can't see the problem - mine went in as Chairman Mao. The Red Book is his favourite bed time reading.

I doubt very much that the child has even read Mein Kampf either, what's wrong with Harry Potter FGS?

Not much chance of supplication either, with hitler.

I agree. Totally outrageous.

efore anyone says LOL I didn't get it wrong- DH pointed it out, I said oh no must be Charlie Chaplin or somesuch then kid took off coat toreveal lovingly embroidered swatiokas.

It did concern me that the Mummight be on here then I thought no! It isn't OK and its worth making a fuss over.


Does anyone elses thought processes runa long the lines of 'Oh a favourite literare character? no darling skip Roald Dahl, Seuss and Grimm.... we'll go for a genocidalmaniac instead! No chance of suplication there!'
