Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

Kindergarten-Grade 4–This lavishly illustrated book features sweeping, theatrical watercolor spreads and elaborate borders that help to draw connections between the real-life action, Marie's dream, and the ballet itself. A brief introduction gives the background of the story's publication and its connection to the Tchaikovsky ballet. In comparison to the polished and stylish Nutcracker retold by John Cech (HarperBlessings, 2009), this lengthy version features more dialogue–occasionally stilted–and busier, larger illustrations.–Virginia Walter, UCLA Graduate School of Education and Information Studies, CA END

I had heard the story before, but not the whole story the way the original author intended. I am glad I purchased this book and have been sharing it with my entire family.

Gail de Marcken makes the scenes from this classic tale as alive as they could ever be. The colors are vivid, making you feel the emotions of the story. The details of the illustrations are delightful.

I ordered this book for my daughter after we went to see "The Nutcracker" ballet.
The book is of a very good quality, it is large, and makes an excellent gift.
