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 by the Newbery Medal-winning and New York Times bestselling author of American Gods and Norse Mythology, Neil Gaiman, and illustrated in bold colors by Divya Srinivasan.

This stunning picture book will transport readers to another time and place and will delight parents and children alike. "Full of Gaiman's wit and whimsy, this one is great for reading aloud (and looks pretty lovely on the shelf as well). Gorgeous, with lush illustrations by Divya Srinivasan" (

Rated 1 out of 5 by from A Huge FAIL for Gaiman I read this one to my 7 year old and WOW what a stinker. Once upon a time I was the BIGGEST Gaiman fan - from his comic books to his novels to his TV series Neverwhere he was THE BEST writer. He could make any medium fresh and amazing. Now I know this is a children's book but over the years I have enjoyed his work less and less and less and now we come to this "book". The story makes no sense, there is no logic, point, entertainment value at all. Even at this level of writing it could be just a silly story of a cat losing his buttons or an emperor losing his yellow cat (two children's books that come to mind) but it should at least be fun. This one was not. We even have a family member getting eaten for...what? A punchline? Yikes. It would have to work hard to write something this bad. the princess can't speak but the talking tiger gets her to talk by...I am still not sure why he succeeded when others failed. As I said - I can't even see the point the story was making. So disappointing to see my once favourite writer producing content that lacks any entertainment vale for me Or my 7 year old (who was the first to say how much it made no sense and was no fun).

Editorial Reviews

“An enigmatic parable with glowing artwork. Gaiman’s lyrical and distinctive fairy tale begs to be read aloud.”
