The Gypsy Princess
Written and illustrated by Phoebe Gilman.
Kindergarten - grade 3 / Ages 5 - 8.
Cinnamon left the banquet hall and went down to the great gilded gates. Opening them cautiously, she stepped onto the rough road that led away from the palace. The wind whispered, "Cinnamon, Cinnamon." She wanted to follow, but it was too hard to walk in the high-heeled princess shoes. Cinnamon turned back. That night, as she tossed and turned upon her soft princess bed, her old auntie again appeared in her dream. "Who are you, my child?" she demanded. And Cinnamon answered, "I cannot remember." The next morning, Cinnamon was more restless than ever. The bars of the palace gates seemed like the bars of a gilded cage.
