Overview


This beautifully illustrated adaptation of the Nutcracker delivers timeless magic and wonder right to your fingertips. A paperback edition offers front-row tickets to this beloved holiday tradition.

It's Christmas Eve in 19th century Europe. And on this magical evening, young Clara's eccentric godfather has given her a beautiful wooden nutcracker.

As midnight strikes, Clara's wooden toy transforms into a handsome prince, and Christmas quickly becomes even more enchanting. The prince takes Clara on a romantic overnight adventure into a dream world of delicacies called the Land of Sweets.

Clara's adventure ends as she wakes up snuggly tucked in her bed. As she embraces her nutcracker, she realizes that the best part of Christmas...is the magic it brings.

On Christmas Eve, a little girl helps break the spell on her wooden nutcracker and watches him turn into a handsome prince, who takes her to his kingdom in the Land of Sweets.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

"Vagin's ability to capture the flavor of the different cultures reflected in the various dances lends credibility and appeal to his version of the story. Children will pore over the details in the Christmas tree decorations, costumes, architecture, and landscapes and always discover something new." – Booklist

"A new and attractive rendition of a perennial favorite" - SLJ

"...Vagin's lush illustrations take playful liberties with perspective and echo the illusory nature of Tchaikovsky's ballet." - PW

    Follows the Ballet Closely

    I purchased this book for my daughter (age 3) shortly after viewing the ballet on stage. She knew the characters and was able to follow along and know what to expect. While reading the story to her, my boys (age 7 and 5) couldn't wait to hear about the duel with the Mouse King and the travels Clara makes to the Land of Sweets. It was very entertaining and reinforced everything they saw when we went to the Ballet. Definitely something we'll be reading again especially BEFORE we see the Ballet again.

    A Great Intro to the Nutcracker!

    I purchased this for my 4 year-old daughter because we will be going to see the Nutcracker Ballet, and I wanted her to understand the story. It is very age-appropriate for her, and she asks to read it regularly. Hopefully it will help her to grasp what is happening on the stage. Regardless, it's a great version of the story for anyone!
