Picked this up at a yard sale. Published in '55 by The Platt & Munk-Co. inc written by Helen Bannerman with drawings by Eulolie. The character Sambo was not an "African" as is often believed, he was from India. The English called a lot of non-white groups, races , etc "blacks". Americans use the term for African Americans. The interior pictures depict him and his family as Indians. The cover however looks like a derogatory African-American stereotype to me.
