The Story of Little Babaji Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

So he put on all his Fine Clothes, and went out for a walk in the Jungle. And by and by he met a Tiger. And the Tiger said to him, "Little Babaji, I'm going to eat you up!" And Little Babaji said, "Oh! Please Mr. Tiger, don't eat me up, and I'll give you my beautiful little Red Coat."

So goes this classic tale of a boy who outwits the proud tigers in the jungle, a story of courage and pancakes. Brought brilliantly to life with Fred Marcellino's high-spirited illustrations, this deluxe paperback edition is every bit as charming as the original hardcover edition. A diminutive book, perfect for little fingers, The Story of Little Babaji is an ideal read-aloud choice for story hour.

Synopsis:

Synopsis:

Helen Bannerman, who was born in Edinburgh in 1863, lived in India for thirty years. As a gift for her two little girls, she wrote and illustrated The Story of Little Black Sambo (1899), a story that clearly takes place in India (with its tigers and "ghi," or melted butter), even though the names she gave her characters belie that setting.

For this new edition of Bannerman's much beloved tale, the little boy, his mother, and his father have all been give authentic Indian names: Babaji, Mamaji, and Papaji. And Fred Marcellino's high-spirited illustrations lovingly, memorably transform this old favorite. He gives a classic story new life.
