This is a wonderful reissue of Helen Bannerman’s The Story of Little Black Sambo. Fred Marcellino has taken Bannerman’s exact text, only changing the plucky hero’s name, and that of his mother and father, to give them authentic Indian names, and produced the most stunning 72 page visual treat.
‘Lavishly produced, with a stylish tiger-print cover… a timely re-interpretation of a fine, catchy, little tale.’ The GUARDIAN
‘A delightful story. Fred Marcellino’s brilliant watercolours of Babaji’s family and the bull-boy tigers are witty and graceful. The whole book is a joy from start to finish: irresistible.’ CAROUSEL
