Wonderful colors, a nicely told story and the clever and beautiful use of varied materials in the creation of this book make it a real winner. Patricia Fry will now join Sabuda and Reinhardt as a favorite pop-up book artist. She manages to simply convey the story of the Nutcracker, while giving each page a WOW! with the intricacy of the paper engineering. The pages are full of characters that would be familiar to anyone who has seen the ballet - even exotic dancers, a full and beautiful Christmas tree, and a castle with spun sugar turrets. There are several fully dimensional figures, making it possible to enjoy the pages from every angle. In fact, one might miss something if it isn't turned every which way while enjoying each page! I especially appreciated that there are no "glitches" in getting the pop-ups to open and then collapse as the pages are turned. Children would love this book with adult supervision, as the constructions seem to be exceptionally sturdy for a book of this type. It is a truly lovely book, and one to treasure!

My 3-year-old daughter loves this book, walking around the house with it and asking to read it every night at bedtime for a couple of months now. We watched "Nutcracker on Ice" and, having read this book, she was able to make connections and understand it a little.

I love this book because the pop-up details go far beyond any other pop-up I've ever seen. It has details on the back and even inside some of the pop-ups. And it is sturdy enough that it has held together quite well under my daughter's loving "attention". In addition, the story itself is told in a short, understandable way.

I would recommend this book for anyone who would like a delightful and simple introduction to the Nutcracker.

This is a beautiful book. It is viewable from all sides and is marvelous for helping children (andadults) learn the story behind the ballet.

This was my first pop up book. I gave it to my grandaughter for Christmas. As she turned each page, all I heard from everyone, (including myself) was, "Oh wow!".
It is very thick and very nice. Nice item, very well made. Glad I got it.

This is a beautifully made book and the Amazon price was $7.00 less then cover price. My 7 year old granddaugter can't put it down. The illustrations are double-side so that you see a 3-dimentional view from all sides. It is delicate, though, and a smaller child might need supervision to avoid tearing.

A beautiful pop-up book! Detailed pictures. I had problems getting the pages to pop-up all the way so they could be fully appreciated. I took my grandaughter to see the Nutcracker Suite Ballet after reading her this book. I searched for a long time before I found this book. All the other books about the Nutcracker were boring.
