Cinnamon

  • Title: Cinnamon
  • Author: Neil Gaiman
  • Illustrator: Divya Srinivasan
  • Publisher: HarperCollins Publishers
  • Publication year: 2017
  • Brief Summary: From HarperCollins-“A talking tiger is the only one who may be able to get a princess to speak in this beautiful picture book set in a mythic India. This stunning picture book will transport readers to another time and place and will delight parents and children alike.”
  • Ideas for using this book in classroom or library – I think this book could be useful in evaluating different literary terms and characterization for an English class. I found this resource from Literary Curriculum that gives a small lesson plan.
  • Whatever additional notes you’d like to add about this book and why you liked or didn’t like it – While this fairy tale was imagined by Neil Gaiman, I am glad that he paired with Srinivasan for the illustrations, because they really take the book to the next level. I think my favorite illustration is of Cinnamon talking with the tiger on the pavilion. I did enjoy the bits of humor that Gaiman sprinkles in throughout the book.
