E.T.A. Hoffmann’s classic tale The Nutcrackerhas charmed generations of balletgoers, but in book form its plot can seem complicated. This picture book was created specifically for parents who want to introduce their youngest children to the basics of the story. The text is as engaging as it is accessible, and Linda Bronson’s lush, candy-colored illustrations capture each magical scene, from the Nutcracker’s triumphant battle with the Mouse King to Clara’s transformation into a princess. Also included is an author’s note about the history of the Nutcrackerballet. This holiday treat is the perfect way to set the stage for the enjoyment of a performance.
