Description

Christmas just isn't Christmas without The Nutcracker! This beautiful book, which includes a fully orchestrated CD of the score, invites children to dance, prance, and relive the ballet long after the tree comes down. Peter Malone's exquisite illustrations capture all the magic of The Nutcracker's most memorable scenes: the Christmas Eve party, Godfather Drosselmeyer's spellbinding visit, and the ferocious battle between the Mouse King and the Nutcracker. Marie's journey to the Land of Sweets, where the Sugar Plum Fairy welcomes her with exuberant dancers from around the globe--and toothsome desserts--springs to life as never before. Stephanie Spinner's lyrical text, Peter Malone's jewel-like artwork, and a sparkling performance of Peter Ilyich Tchaikovsky's unforgettable music make this a gift to inspire even the very youngest dancer.
