PREFACE.

TIHERE is vlery/little
to sa a6 < le stof'\
of / Sadbo.
Once orath:.it e there
was a, i. lady in
Ind cl ia, w -e black
children around arid ti-
gers are everyday affairs,
iii






who had two little girls.
To amse these little
girls she used now and
then to invent stories,
for which, being ex-
tremely talented, she
also drew and coloured
the pictures. Among
these stories Little Black
Sambo, which was made
up on a long railway
journey, was the favour-
ite; and it has been put
iv






into a DUMPY BOOK, and
the pictures copied as
exatcly as possible, in
the hope that you will
like it as much as the
two little girls did.













The Story of
Little Black Sambo.










The Story of
Little Black Sambo.



NCE upon a time ..
there was a little
black boy, and his name
was Little Black Sambo.


2











And his Mother was
called Black Mumbo.













And his Father was
called Black Jumbo.








6










And Black Mumbo
made him a beautiful
little Red Coat, and a













pair of beautiful little
Blue Trousers.









10









Arid Black Jumbo
went to the Bazaar, and
bought him a beautiful
Green Umbrella, and a
lovely little Pair of Pur-
ple Shoes with Crimson
Soles and Crimson
Linings.



I2











And then wasn't.Little
Black Sambo
grand?








14






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 Black Sambo,
I'm going to eat you
up!" And Little Black
Sambo said, "Oh!
Please Mr. Tiger, don't
eat me up, and I'll give






you my beautiful 'little
Red Coat." 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."






I
And Little Black
Sambo went on, and by
and by he met another
Tiger, and it said to him,
"Little Black Sambo,
I'm going to eat you
up!" And Little Black
Sambo said, "Oh!
Please Mr. Tiger, don't
eat me up, and I'll give






you my beautiful little
Blue Trousers." So the
Tiger said, "Very well,
I wont' eat you this time,
but you must give me
your beautiful little Blue
Trousers." So the Ti-
ger got poor Little Black
Sambo's beautiful little
Blue Trousers, and went
away saying, Now I'm
the grandest Tiger in
the Jungle."
22






And Little Black
Sambo went on and by
and by he met another
Tiger, and it said to him,
"Little Black Sambo,
I'm going to eat you
up!" And Little Black
Sambo said, "Oh!
Please Mr. Tiger, don't
eat me up, and I'll give
you my beautiful little
Purple Shoes with









Crimson Soles and
Crimson Linings."
But the Tiger said,
"What use would your
shoes be to me? I've
got four feet, and you've
got only two; you haven't
got enough shoes for
me.






So the Tiger got poor
Little Black Sambo's
beautiful little Purple
Shoes with Crimson
Soles and Crimson Lin-
ings, and went away
saying, "Now I'm the
grandest Tiger in the
Jungle."
And by and by Little
Black Sambo met an-
other Tiger, and it said






to him, "Little Black
Sambo, I'm going to eat
you up!" And Little
Black Sambo said, "Oh!
Please Mr. Tiger, don't
eat me up, and I'll give
you my beautiful Green
Umbrella." But the Ti-
ger said, "How can I
carry an umbrella, when
I need all my paws for
walking with?"






"You could tie a knot
on your tail and carry it
that way," said Little
Black Sambo. "So I
could," said the Tiger.
"Give it to me, and I
won't eat you this time."
So he got poor little
Black Sambo's beautiful
Green Umbrella, and
went away saying,
"Now I'm the grandest
Tiger in the Jungle."
32











And poor Little
Black Sambo went away
crying, because the cruel
Tigers had taken all his
fine clothes.





34






Presently he heard a
horrible noise that sound-
ed like "Gr-r-r-r-rrrrrrr,"
and it got louder and
louder. "Oh! dear! said
Little Black Sambo,
"there are all the Tigers
coming back to eat me
up! What shall I do?"
So he ran quickly to a
palm-tree, and peeped
round it to see what the
matter was.
36






And there he saw all
the Tigers fighting, and
disputing which of them
was the grandest. And
at last they all got so
angry that they jumped
up and took off all the
fine clothes, and began
to tear each other with
theirclaws, and bite each
other with their great
big white teeth.






And they came, roll-
ing and tumbling right to
the foot of the very tree
where Little Black Sam-
bo was hiding, but he
jumped quickly in be-
hind the umbrella. And
the Tigers all caught
hold of each others' tails,
as they wrangled and
scrambled, and so they
found themselves in a
ring round the tree.
-40







Then, when the Ti-
gers were very wee and
very far away, Little
Black Sambo jumped
up, and called out, "Oh!
Tigers! why have you
taken off all your nice
clothes? Don't you
want them any more?"
But the Tigers only an-
swered, "Gr-r-rrrrr!"







Then Little Black
Sambo said, "If you
want them, say so, or I'll
take them away." But
the Tigers would not let
go of each others' tails,
and so they could only
say "Gr-r-r-r-rrrrrrr!"
So Little Black Sam-
bo put on all his fine
clothes again and walk-
ed off.
44


- ,".^






And the Tigers were
very, very angry, but
still they would not let
go of each others' tails.
And they were so angry,
that they ran round the
tree, trying to eat each
other up, and they ran
faster and faster, till they
were whirling round so
fast that you couldn't see
their legs at all.








And they still ran
faster and faster and fast-
er, till they all just melt-
ed away, and there was
nothing left but a great
big pool of melted butter
(or "ghi," as it is called
in India) round the foot
of the tree.







Now Black Jumbo
was just coming home
from his work, with a
great big brass pot in his
arms, and when he saw
what was left of all the
Tigers he said, "Oh!
what lovely melted but-
ter! I'll take that home
to Black Mumbo for
her to cook with."







So he put it all into
the great big brass pot,
and took it home to
Black Mumbo to cook
with.
When Black Mumbo
saw the melted butter,
wasn't she pleased!
"Now," said she, "we'll
all have pancakes for
supper!"






So she got flour ald
eggs and milk and sugar
and -butter, and she
made a huge big plate
of most lovely pancakes..
And she fried them in,
the melted butter which
the Tigers had made,
and they were just as
yellow and brown as,
little Tigers.






,.,*-- '"'(^-S.^^--^
A hev a11 sdt
down to supper..
Black Mumbo ate '
Twenty-seven pancakes,
and Black Jumbo ate
Fifty-five, but Little'
Black Sambo, ate a
Hundred and Sixty-
nine, because he was so
hungry.
