The Nutcracker by Michael Hague

Adventure, fantasy, romance, a world full of toys and sweets, and of course Christmas. These are the hallmarks of this timeless classic story. Brought theatrically to life by Michael Hague. It is the unforgettable dream of a peculiar Christmas gift, a nutcracker that leads a young girl into a magical realm, where she boldly help save a boy living under an evil curse. This elegant retelling combines E.T.A. Hoffman's original version with beloved elements of the ballet in a readable picture book format.
