About this title


When Noel is cast as a tree in a production of The Nutcracker and stuck-up Mia gets the part of the dancing cookie doll, Noel unsuccessfully tries everything to get herself a better part, but on opening night, an unexpected surprise changes everything. Reprint.

From Booklist:

Ages 6-9. Noel wants to dance in a real ballet, and the operative word here is dance. She is disappointed to learn that she will be performing as a tree in The Nutcracker. Meanwhile, another young dancer, Mia (known as Cookiekins to her ubiquitous, mink-coated mother), is making the most out of her part as gingerbread-cookie doll. Noel can't help but be jealous; however, with her teacher's encouragement, she decides to get inside the part, to become the tree. On the day of the performance, she gets an unexpected reward. She's the one who gets to wear a shimmering white gown sprinkled with snow, while Mia is stuck with a baggy brown costume, including a big old head that covers her completely. In a moment of generosity, Noel shares her secret with Mia: "You are a gingerbread cookie. Believe it, and no one who sees you will ever forget your Christmas cookie dance." That's a nice sentiment, and there's another at the book's conclusion in which Noel decides that being a tree isn't exactly her dream--it's better. What cuts the sugar are the text's humor and the arch paintings that slyly depict every bit of jealousy and backstage antics that take place even at this age group. Featuring elongated figures with almost Pinocchio-type noses, the watercolor pictures are delightfully distinctive, lively, and full of wit. Quite a performance. Ilene Cooper
