What a find. Sometimes you feel that a writer just 'clicks' with you. Not even halfway through this story, I had ordered two books by the same author.

3.0 Nutcracker
I'm so used to seeing the Nutcracker as a ballet that it comes as a big of a shock to see the story in print.(And, honestly, I'm not sure that I don't prefer it that way.)Love the Sendak illustrations. Why not, I suggest, just have them? Skip the words which feel redundant. A wordless book, maybe?

I've not ever really read the Nutcracker. I remember seeing the ballet when I was a kid but that was it. I loved this story. It also kept my 9 year old boy's attention. It was a little long and we had to break the reading in two nights. But that was not a hinderance at all. I'd highly recommend this...

5.0 Nutcracker
There's a toy army battling a Mouse King. Okay, so it's just a dream, but I love it.
