The Nutcracker - A Magic Theater Book
A Magic Theater Book
Written by Geraldine McCaughrean
Illustrated by Kristina Swarner
This holiday edition of The Nutcracker magically recreates the motion, color, and delight of the classic ballet. Characters dance into life simply by turning the pages—with no tabs for the reader to pull. From the twirling Sugar Plum Fairy and the evil Mouse King to the Nutcracker Prince, the cast of characters creates a "theater" effect as each steps out of intricately die-cut panels. Author Geraldine McCaughrean's retelling sparkles with enchantment and drama, her words exquisitely matched by Kristina Swarner's luminous, jewel-toned illustrations.
