Product Description

Introduce your little ones to the Christmas classic, The Nutcracker with this adapted illustrated version. On Christmas Eve, Clara and Fritz are waiting patiently for the party to start and for their godfather, Drosselmeyer, to bring them presents. When he finally arrives, he brings many wonderful toys, but Clara is taken by a rather simple nutcracker. Her brother promptly steals and breaks it, but Drosselmeyer repairs it for her.

After everyone else goes to sleep, she goes to say goodnight to the Christmas tree and nutcracker, when something strange happens.

Sample text:

Waiting behind closed doors was difficult for Clara and Fritz. But it was especially difficult on Christmas Eve!
The children struggled to avoid wrinkling and spotting their new clothes. Clara was able to meet the challenge, but Fritz found it unbearable.
Clara and her brother tried to busy themselves with their favorite books, but the activity behind the doors drew all their attention. Neither Robin Hood’s nor Alice’s adventures could pull them away.
Only the loudest sounds came through the solidly built walls and door. "I bet that’s one of your presents," said the mischief-making Fritz at the sound of a sudden crash. "It’s probably broken."
Seven-year-old Clara, though, was used to her brother’s taunts and was not concerned. Especially since she was absorbed by imaginings of her own. Behind the doors, she envisioned a tree with toys and edible treats, and beneath the tree, a large box containing a new doll, curly-haired, in a dress with a big sash and pantaloons with many layers. Oh, how lovely she would be! They’d go on excursions and be constant companions—the very best of friends.
