A gift-book to treasure for all fans of this wonderful old story and ballet. It is Christmas Eve and Clara is overjoyed when Godfather Drosselmeyer gives her a nutcracker in the shape of a wooden soldier. But it is at night that the magic really begins, when toys come alive, young girls become princesses and Clara's brave nutcracker becomes the prince of her dreams. This beautiful and lyrical re-telling of Hoffman's much-loved Nutcracker story, from which the famous ballet was created, is exquisitely and enchantingly illustrated, making it a book to treasure.
