Review

Cinnamon is a princess who lives with her parents, the Rajah and Rani of India, and an elderly great-aunt. But Cinnamon does not talk. The royals promise a room in the palace and groves of treasures to anyone who can get Cinnamon to speak. The narrative reads like a fairy tale and the illustrations are vivid and colorful. Unfortunately, the writing is weak and inconsistent at times. The narrative tends to justify the tiger’s rather concerning actions. While the cultural elements of this tale are intriguing, other titles may better serve a library collection.

Not Recommended. RaeAnn Jent, Centennial Library Intern
