Publisher's summary

Cinnamon was a princess, a long time ago, in a small hot country, where everything was very old. Cinnamon did not talk. Mango trees, a parrot, and a beautiful room in the palace do nothing to help the teachers who try to make her to speak.

Can a man-eating tiger do so, and exactly who will end up in the belly of the beast?

A Wonderful Funny Story

Neil Gaiman's voice is so perfect for reading his own stories!! His pauses are awesome. I laughed out loud several times! Love this one!

I think that I would love this even if my name were not Cinnamon. I think I prefer Princess Cinnamon 😉

Another new Fairytale from Neil Gaiman

Neil Gaiman reads his books for you giving all the enthusiasm of a great author's feeling about the story. Neil likes to imagine a world where Princesses are not helpless females, but capable women. i like his mesmerizing voice and love listening to his children's work with or without my grandchildren.
