Synopsis

The Nutcracker by John Cech

Every year around Christmas, thanks to the perennially popular ballet 'The Nut Cracker', children have visions of sugar-plum fairies dancing in their heads - and onstage. So what better gift than this enchanting paperback version of John Cech's retelling of E.T.A Hoffman's classic tale, which covers not only ballet, but also other wondrous adventures? Featuring illuminous illustrations by Eric Puybaret and folded flyleaf's ('French flaps'), this book belongs under every child's tree.
