Awards, Reviews & Star Ratings

NZ Review This book is based on the original story by E T A Hoffman, and is illustrated by Federica Fenna. The Nutcracker is, of course, a much-loved seasonal story and this abridged retelling makes it suitable for a young audience. Accompanying the text are beautiful detailed search and find scenes where children can find the characters and follow them through the story. There are lots of other objects to spot as well; there are 10 objects and characters to find in each scene and looking for them enhances appreciation for the illustrations. Popular scenes feature Marie and Fritz receiving gifts, the battle between the dolls and the mice and Marie's journey to Candyland. The illustrations offer lots to look at and plenty to talk about and the book as a whole is a lovely introduction to the ballet. * Parents in Touch * A lavishly gilded illustrated book, inviting keen-eyed puzzle fans to find hidden treasures as this classic story unfolds. * Little London *
