Whistling for the ElephantsWhistling for the Elephants: 05/29/05

I'm currently reading Whistling for the Elephants by Sandi Toksvic and while I am enjoying it, there are a few glaring errors that have twice stopped me reading in mid sentence. First is the Pledge of Allegiance which is misquoted. The second is the mentioning of the Brady Bunch being on in early summer of 1968. It didn't start airing until September of the next year. There are also some instances of Britishisms being spoken by American characters. None of these things would bother me if the story wasn't priding itself on getting the details right.
