Synopsis: Little Black Sambo by Helen Bannerman. Illustrated By Florence White Williams. So the Tiger said, "Very well, I won't eat you this time, but you must give me your beautiful little Red Coat." So the Tiger got poor Little Black Sambo's beautiful little Red Coat, and went away saying, now I'm the grandest Tiger in the Jungle." The Story of Little Black Sambo is a children's book written and illustrated by Helen Bannerman, and first published by Grant Richards in October 1899 as one in a series of small-format books called The Dumpy Books for Children. The story was a children's favorite for half a century until the word sambo was deemed a racial slur in some countries and the illustrations considered reminiscent of "darky iconography". Both text and illustrations have undergone considerable revision since. Sambo is a South Indian boy who lives with his father and mother, named Black Jumbo and Black Mumbo, respectively. Sambo encounters four hungry tigers, and surrenders his colourful new clothes, shoes, and umbrella so they will not eat him. The tigers are vain and each thinks he is better dressed than the others. They chase each other around a tree until they are reduced to a pool of melted butter. Sambo then recovers his clothes and his mother, Black Mumbo, makes pancakes out of the butter.

About the Author: Helen Bannerman (1862–1946) was a Scottish author of children's books. She is best known for her first book, Little Black Sambo. Bannerman was born in Edinburgh. Because women were not admitted into British universities, she sat external examinations set by the University of St. Andrews, attaining the qualification of Lady Literate in Arts (LLA). Bannerman wrote about India. The illustrations and settings of her books demonstrate that the children she writes about are south Indian or Tamil. For instance, Little Black Sambo has ghee, tigers, and bazaar, Story of Little Black Mingo has jungle, mugger (a kind of crocodile), dhobi, and mongoose, Little Black Quasha has bazaar and tigers, and Story of Little Black Quibba has mangoes and elephants.
