Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

Kindergarten-Grade 4–Each holiday season seems to generate a new batch of picture-book versions of The Nutcracker. This edition adds little to the selections already in most collections. The relatively lengthy text tells the complete story of the ballet. Malone's exquisite watercolors depict a late-18th-century household in which a generous godfather presents his rather odd gifts of life-sized dolls and a small nutcracker figure that come alive in Clara's dream. An author's endnote gives the history of the ballet. A CD of the score performed by the Utah Symphony Orchestra is included.–Virginia Walter, University of California, Los Angeles

This book is great for my classroom. My students loved it, and it has lots of great vocabulary words for them to learn.

My favorite copy of the nutcracker story. Music adds a special touch to the superb pictures. A wonderful book for any adult or child's collection.

This is such a beautiful book about a classic and traditional story. The first music and first production heard and seen by all of my nieces.
