Enjoy E. T. A Hoffman's age old tale in this beautifully and intricately illustrated retelling.

This makes a truly memorable gift for any age and is especially wonderful when paired with The Fir Tree

 

On Christmas Eve, Fritz and Marie excitedly await the arrival of Godfather Drosselmeier and the marvellous gifts he brings for them every year. When Marie discovers a curious nutcracker doll among the presents, she suddenly finds herself caught up in an age-old battle before being transported to a magical world of sugar-frosted castles, chocolate kings, and true love.
