“An enigmatic parable with glowing artwork. Gaiman’s lyrical and distinctive fairy tale begs to be read aloud.” — School Library Journal
Cinnamon lives in a magnificent palace, wears an orange sari, and has pearls for eyes, “which gave her great beauty, but meant she was blind.” The Rajah and Rani offer gifts to those who can get her to speak. All fail until a tiger appears: “He was huge and fierce, a nightmare in black and orange, and he moved like a god through the world, which is how tigers move.”
This beautiful picture book set in a mythic India is by the Newbery Medal–winning and New York Times bestselling author of American Gods and Norse Mythology, Neil Gaiman, and is illustrated in bold colors by Divya Srinivasan.
