      Little Black Sambo How I loved this story.. I always remember how Sambo got the tiger to chase his tale so fast that the tiger turned to butter,, or have I lost my mind? I wanted shoes like Sambos. One of my favorite books,

      The most controversial Little Golden Book was Little Black Sambo. My grandma used to read it to me and it was one of my favorites. However, the word “sambo” is considered a racial slur in some countries and the book has been one of the most controversial books in existence. In 2004, Little Golden Books released a new version titled The Boy and the Tigers. The boy in it is called Little Ranjani. Today, a first edition regularly brings values of $150 or more.
