    1 thought on “The Nutcracker

    1. A lovely holiday confection, this book is based on The Nutcracker ballet The story is told in a very readable and accessible way that will invite children who don t know the ballet story to hear it for the first time It also welcomes those who know the ballet to return to the story in a new format The book follows Clara as she moves through her Christmas Eve and receives a nutcracker toy for a present Her brother works the mechanism too hard and the nutcracker s jaw is broken In the evening Clar [...]

    2. This book tells of the story of the Nutcracker Ballet, than another book I read the same day It is well written, and has nice illustrations, but it is too long to tell to the young children, who will be coming to the story time, at our Nativity Event.

    3. I bought this for my children who are both in the Nutcracker It is similar to the story they dance to then others I love the art Just beautiful.

    4. Ever since the reading of this story and my daughter seeing an abridged version of the Nutcracker ballet, my daughter has been enchanted The classic story gets a beautiful treatment from Alison Jay s illustrations and her unique style adds a welcomed, unique element to the tale of a girl, her nutcracker and a magical dream.

    5. See, I had to get this one and read it because we went to SEE The Nutcracker, but the problem is, I thought that this one would be a story about DANCING, not soldiers But it was still good I just need a book about dancing.But what s good is that it s a good story, and I didn t know that it was a story before it was dancing So now I sort of get everything about what they were doing onstage besides dancing around all random in costumes.

    6. Beautiful illustrations of the Waltz of the Flowers Slight variation of what really happened, but only minute differences Overall, not my favorite Nutcracker retelling however, it s still a good story.

    7. A super cutesy version of the nutcracker, this removes all of the slightly scary undercurrents present in other retellings For details, check out my blogpost about it.

    8. The classic story of The Nutcracker, with a fairly simple narrative and big, colorful illustrations that have a crackle varnish finish on them that make them look very old We all love the story and we enjoyed reading this book aloud together.

    9. Not particularly my favorite story of The Nutcracker, but it is one in which most of the action as well as the characters names remain true Plus, it s a kid friendly story.

    10. This is a classic The story of the nutcracker has never changed and I hope it never does This version told a wonderful magic tale that would capture any child s attention.

    11. It highlights the most important parts of the classic story, and the illustrations are of a timeless beauty.
