Sally and Herbert

Herbert the Lion, that is.

"There was once a little girl named Sally who wanted a baby lion. She already had a doll's house, two dolls, a tea set, and a toy zebra on wheels, but she didn't like any of them. All she wanted was a lion, a real, live lion. So one day her mother brought her one from downtown."

-Clare Turlay Newberry, Herbert the Lion, 1931

  1. Obviously they lived in London and bought the lion at Harrod's. That's where Christian the Lion came from, after all.
