Politically correct Black Sambo

by GrannyNanny on Dec 17, 2009

If Julius Lester can't rescue this charming tale from oblivion, nobody can. I do kind of miss the rhythms and repetitions, and especially the phrase, "Now I'm the grrrandest tiger in the jungle!" but if that's what it took, it is still worth the sacrifice to have this classic back in the mainstream.
