the original cover of Little Black Sambo.

The Story of Little Black Sambo is a children's book by Helen Bannerman. Helen was a Scottish national. The book was first published in 1899 and features the hero, Sambo, outwitting a group of hungry tigers to return safely home where he eats 169 pancakes for his supper.

The story takes place in a mythical India and the tigers racing around the tree are turned into ghee, an Indian form of butter.

The story was a children's favorite for many years, but then became controversial in certain countries due to the increase of political correctness.

Helen Bannerman went on to write many similar books.
