Fall in love with Cinnamon with these delicious illustrations

Published on: 12 Gorffennaf 2017 Author: Catriona Wightman

Neil Gaiman's new fable Cinnamon will transport you to far off lands - all helped by the utterly captivating illustrations from Divya Srinivasan.

The story follows a princess called Cinnamon, who is blind because her eyes are made of pearls... and also refuses to speak.

Her parents offer a huge reward to anyone who can help their daughter find her voice, but nothing works. That is, until a tiger appears and promises to get Cinnamon the girl-cub to speak.

The fascinating story is vividly brought to life by Divya's illustrations, and we have a sneak peek at them for you right here. So sit back, relax, and immerse yourself in this beautiful world.
