"This might be one of the most beautiful books for children ever. "Now: I am here to teach the girl-cub to talk." Absolutely exquisite!
recommended if you like: tigers!"— Amelia
A perfect read-aloud picture book 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.
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. "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" (Brightly).
