Overview

In a hot, hot country, ringed with mountains on one side and jungle on the other, lives a princess called Cinnamon. Her eyes are made of pearls, which means that she is blind. And, for reasons her parents the Rajah and Rani cannot fathom, she will not talk. So they offer a reward to anyone who can teach Cinnamon to speak. People travel from far and wide to attempt it, but nothing works. Until a mighty tiger, huge and fierce, prowls into their palace and announces that he is here to teach the girl-cub to talk ...

A mighty fable from Neil Gaiman, winner of the Newbery and Carnegie Medals, illustrated in vivid colour by up-and-coming talent Divya Srinivasan. Neil Gaiman's work has been widely adapted for film and TV, including films of Coraline and Stardust, and adaptations of American Gods, Good Omens (written with Terry Pratchett) and How to Talk to Girls at Parties are in the works for 2017.

This eBook comes with a gloriously entertaining audio accompaniment, read Neil Gaiman himself.

Cinnamon does not talk, she is a princess whose parents offer great riches to any man who can get her to talk. She is blind, she has pearls for eyes. One day, a talking tiger comes to the palace and claims that he can get “the girl-cub to talk” but the people in the palace are afraid of the tiger. The tiger is allowed to stay and Cinnamon goes to the tiger room to see him. I love how Cinnamon approaches tiger and pushes “her fingers into its fur and felt its hot breath on her face.” The tiger has Cinnamon experience things in this room with him, and by the morning, the two of them face Cinnamon’s parents. Her parents are told what occurred in the room overnight and Cinnamon’s future is addressed. A child’s book by Neil Gaiman, yes, I think I will have to read this one. This is a unique story and I really enjoyed the illustrations in this picture book. I thought the facial illustrations were fantastic and I liked the crisp bright colors used on the pages. I think this novel would be good for middle elementary students or older.
