Jan Brett's The Nutcracker


When Marie and her brother Fritz receive a special Christmas nutcracker from their uncle, Marie immediately feels something magical.

"He looks like a real boy," she mused. "A real boy with a secret, who came from far away."

Jan Brett makes the classic story of The Nutcracker her own by setting it in snowy Russia and adding whimsical touches to the favorite elements of the traditional ballet. Enjoying this book will be an instant Christmas tradition for families who love the ballet and those new to the story.
