The tale of Nutcracker, written by E.T.A. Hoffmann in 1816, has fascinated and inspired artists, composers, and audiences for almost two hundred years. It has retained its freshness because it appeals to the sense of wonder we all share. In this original version, a Marie worries about a beautiful nutcracker that's been broken. At night, she goes to check up on it. To her surprise, it has come alive, and a story-within-the-story begins: armies of mice and toy soldiers battle in what is either the child's delirious nightmare, or perhaps another reality into which she wanders. Includes vintage illustration!

About the Author:

Ernst Theodor Amadeus Hoffmann (1776 - 1822) was a German author of fantasy and horror, a jurist, composer, music critic, draftsman, and caricaturist. He is the subject and hero of Offenbach's famous opera The Tales of Hoffmann, and was one of the major authors of the Romantic movement. Robert Ingpen is a Hans Christian Andersen Medal award-winning illustrator whose works include illustrated editions of Alice Through the Looking-Glass, Around the World in 80 Days, A Christmas Carol, and Just So Stories.

From School Library Journal:

Kindergarten-Grade 4–This lavishly illustrated book features sweeping, theatrical watercolor spreads and elaborate borders that help to draw connections between the real-life action, Marie's dream, and the ballet itself. A brief introduction gives the background of the story's publication and its connection to the Tchaikovsky ballet. In comparison to the polished and stylish Nutcracker retold by John Cech (HarperBlessings, 2009), this lengthy version features more dialogue–occasionally stilted–and busier, larger illustrations.–Virginia Walter, UCLA Graduate School of Education and Information Studies, CA END
