About the Author:

Eve Bunting has written over two hundred books for children, including the Caldecott Medal-winning Smoky Night, illustrated by David Diaz, The Wall, Fly Away Home, and Train to Somewhere. She lives in Southern California.

Review:

"A gentle, simple story tells of a seven-year-old girl taken by her grandfather to see The Nutcracker on the day before Christmas. It is a day of memories, because he had taken her mother to see it at the same age. But her mother is dead now, and Allie fears that her grandfather will be sad. . . . The California scenery, the presentation of the ballet, and Allie’s delight are beautifully portrayed in sometimes strong, sometimes romantic, paintings."

Horn Book

"Peck’s freely painted oils—her rough, telling strokes leave the canvas exposed, effectively portraying a California setting some time ago; her dark palette . . . and impressionistic portrayals . . . refer to Degas— reveal a new self-confidence in this talented illustrator. An evocative vignette."
