Despondent and desperate to hear their silent princess speak, the Rajah and the Rani put out word and offer a reward (which includes a green parrot and a field of mango trees) to anyone in the kingdom who can get Cinnamon talk.  Many come to the palace and make attempts—futile though thy are.  Along comes a talking tiger, huge and fierce, who brazenly claims he’s up for the task.  A clever, captivating and enchanting tale perfect for a read-aloud.

Cinnamon was written by Neil Gaiman, illustrated by Divya Srinivasan and published by HarperCollins.
