Real books, with pictures on every page, and the Stevenson book has the music too. Then into the back cover of each is tucked a full sized record, and the story of Little Black Sambo is told by Helen Myers, with accompanying choruses of forest sounds that will delight any child who likes his lions to be realistic. The Stevenson verses are set to music by Helen Myers and sung by Josephine Therese. Good merchandise -- good gift books. Personally, my choice goes to Little Black Sambo.
