Neil Gaiman understands the basic underpinnings of most well-crafted fairy tales: there’s an element of terror and danger, especially when an unhuman creature makes its appearance. Think of “Beauty and the Beast”, “The Three Little Pigs” or “The Enchanted Pig”. Animals who can talk human speech bear their own perils and a feeling of threat may be waiting in the wings or boldly present center stage.

In this bewitching, simple-seeming story about a talking tiger, a Rajah and Rani come to terms with their daughter’s strangeness, that it’s not a matter they can fix (especially with impractical gifts) and that a ferocious man-eating beast must be handled very carefully indeed.

The story resonates with quiet strength, beauty and a touch of humor. The illustrations are like cutouts, colorful and eye-popping. While the ending of the story hints of danger to the little princess, we can hope that she and her tiger found happiness together.
