First printed in October 1899, this is the third reprint from October 1900. Set in India, this is about the adventures of a little boy - Sambo - and a tiger. It was apparently a story made up by Bannerman to tell to her two children during a long train journey. It is a sweet story, with delightful naive style illustrations.

Grubby boards, faded backstrip. Blind impressed bookseller's stamp plus name in ink [discrete] to ffep. Binding good, clean contents.
