      Honestly, I didn't read this book other than a few words here and there. I was so mesmerized/stunned by the beauty of the illustrations I didn't notice much else. This book is a must have just for the illustrations. They're so beautiful they could be framed and hung on your wall.

      I was expected this version of the Nutcracker to be more like the ballet, which I am more familiar with. But this version is quite different. This book is based on the original ballet produced by Marius Petipa. I wasn't familiar with this version when I picked up the book. But the book is beautifully put together. While the text is longer than most picture books, or at least it feels that way because the book has fewer pages than most picture books (to make room for the pop-up at the end). The s [...]

      First sentence: It was Christmas Eve, and Clara and her little brother, Fritz, were bursting with excitement. Premise/plot: A picture book retelling of The Nutcracker. This one is for older readers primarily for two reasons. First, it is text-heavy. Second, it features an intricate pop-up. I don't think it would hold the attention of preschoolers anyway, even without the pop up! My thoughts: I liked this one. I found the illustrations to be striking. Not bright and bold. Not warm and cozy. But s [...]

      I realised the other day, that although I know the story of the Nutcracker, I've never actually read it, so thought since I have this beautiful popup version of it, I would take a quick read of it. Now I have to go get another version of it, so I can read the whole of this enchanting story.

      Beautiful story and illustrations. And the last page with the pop-up is mesmerizing.

      Such a beautiful edition! The illustrations and the pop-up finale are truly gorgeous.

    7. Kimberly on said:

      Holy moly, what lovely illustrations! I spent some quality time admiring the pop-up at the end. I thought the book was a little text-heavy but really, the pictures are just divine.

      Beautiful illustrations and a final-page pop-up that will take your breath away!

    9. Alex Baugh on said:

      In 1892, Pyotr Ilyich Tchaikovsky wrote his famous score The Nutcracker for a two act ballet that was choreographed by Marius Petipa and performed in St. Petersburg on December 18, 1892. This beautifully illustrated version of The Nutcracker is based on the sets of that first ballet. The illustrations are done in a palette of oranges, yellows and blues, with touches of red and green for the Christmas trees. Many of the figures are done in silhouette with only touches of color, adding much to tha [...]

      Puttapipat, Niroot (illustrator) The Nutcracker. PICTURE BOOK. Candlewick, 2016. 978-0763681258 $20.Puttapitat turns the ballet into a lush landscape with silhouetted figures and a pop-up surprise.As an adult, I think this is one of my favorite versions of the ballet. Were I a child, I think I would want something less lushFT – ADVISABLE. Cindy, Library Teacherkissthebook/2016/

      Gorgeous art and beautiful prose. It mostly skips past the second half of the ballet, instead having a single pop-up page with imagery from that section. The pop-up is so intricate, most kids would destroy it just looking at it. Keep this book to grown ups and older kids.

    12. Linda on said:

      It's a gift edition just published in the U.S. Inspired by Marius Petipa’s sets for the original production of the ballet. It has a surprise pop-up finale. For ballet lovers, and for those who attend The Nutcracker every year, it's a wonderful book.
