#AyUpAugust Day 14: Many people, from far and wide, came to their palace, with the intention of getting Princess Cinnamon to speak – to no avail. At least not until this huge and fierce tiger arrived at the palace, with the calm certitude that he would be able to do what no one else has done in helping Cinnamon find her voice. Talk about an #Animal friend. My review of this Neil Gaiman picturebook: https://wp.me/pDlzr-hl6

No #RunningAcrossThinIceWithTigers but a lovely story about a tiger and a blind princess.

Also, a traditional German song about snowflakes and another one about a cat walking in the snow, coming home with white boots on. #50wordsforsnow

Featuring #ShadowCat's behind.

Fun Fact:

If you are 3 years old and your flustered father says “What is this mess on your bed?!” and you say “I made a bookstore! Would you like to buy something?” then you will immediately melt his heart and suffer no ill consequences.

Since my kids aren't with me this week, we opened our box last week on St Lucia's Day (Dec13th). My kids were thrilled with their gifts, and so was I.

There were wonderful books for all of us, funny sweets (jelly beans pooping reindeer and unicorn, Brussels sprouts) and we had so much fun unpacking and cuddling our presents.

Thank you for the wonderful box @Leniverse 😘

Thank you for organizing this @litmuggle 😘

Exquisite art and Gaiman's words. I love that Neil Gaiman writes poetically even for his youngest refers, and although I read the picture book version, I could hear him narrating it in my head which added to my enjoyment.

RealLifeReading @TobeyTheScavengerMonk I hadn't heard of it before! It just so happened that my boy sat down at a table where there were some books left behind and he had to have it because well, dinosaurs 2y
RealLifeReading @Ruri_kaichou yes it was a bit long for a picture book and I think not so much for the younger set. Have you read Gaiman's other picture books? 2y
TobeyTheScavengerMonk It was in the 5th grade reading textbook I used to teach from. The art is wonderful. 2y
Shelflovecrate The cookie fiasco is such a cute book! 2y

Beautifully illustrated story set in India, told with Gaimanian flair.

Cinnamon was born with pearls for eyes & does not speak. Her parents, the Rajah & the Rani, seek one who will teach her to talk; the tiger who arrives after many others fail this task is not what anyone was expecting.

Glad to add this to my #childrenslit collection. Very sweet & the illustrations are so very lovely.

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️/5

Absolutely loved this book with its empowering message, and Divya Srinivasan‘s illustrations are beautiful. Was excited to share it with my niece this week especially after their recent trip to India this year.

Gorgeous illustrations.

An odd little folktale that I'm not sure about. I enjoyed reading it but I think I'm going to pass on reading it to my 5yo.

I would not be surprised to find that this was a traditional Indian folk tale with a bit of Gaiman's style and humor thrown in, like Norse Mythology. I also wouldn't be surprised if this was all him.

The daughter of the Rajah and the Rani is blind and cannot speak. One day a tiger arrives to teach her.

The Rani's aunt, hiding behind the pillar, is the crotchety comic relief who may or may not get eaten.

LeahBergen These illustrations are amazing! And I'll lay my bets right now...Auntie-ji gets it? 😂 (edited) 2y
TobeyTheScavengerMonk @LeahBergen You'll just have to read it and see! But yeah. 2y

A charming, sweet, strange story. It'll be a picture book in May, which I think I'll buy for my little nephew.
