Exactly ike the classic book Little Black Sambo.. just has names changed. I loved the book and the pictures of the tigers melted into butter and made into pancakes.

I purchased this knowing that it was an updated version of the original Little Black Sambo so that isn't the problem. The illustrations are terrible. I'm very disappointed and surprised at Golden book for putting out such a poor copy .Their other version that was banned was illustrated so much better than this one.Even with the ethnic change they could have done so much more with the illustrations than they did.
