Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The jolly and exciting tale of the little boy who lost his red coat and his blue trousers and his purple shoes but who was saved from the tigers to eat 169 pancakes for his supper, has been universally loved by generations of children. First written in 1899, the story has become a childhood classic and the authorized American edition with the original drawings by the author has sold hundreds of thousands of copies.

Little Black Sambo is a book that speaks the common language of all nations, and has added more to the joy of little children than perhaps any other story. They love to hear it again and again; to read it to themselves; to act it out in their play.

Synopsis:

The only authorized American edition of this childhood classic, first published around 1900, tells the naive, humorous story of Black Sambo, his beautiful clothes and his adventures with the tigers in the jungles of India. Full-color illustrations.

My mother read this book to me as a child and I got it for my kids. I have heard some people don't like the fact that the main character is black. I think this a very sweet book. I remember the tigers running around the tree turning into butter, which was weird, so I never forgot it. It is a nice story and good things happen in the end. I don't think of this as a racial book at all. It is the story of a cute little, polite boy who goes through some scares and comes out just fine. I love it for its historical significance.
