In the classic tradition of the Nutcracker ballet, this story unfolds with Marie becoming fasinated with a Christmas gift: The Nutcracker. What unfolds next is a mirage of experiences with the King of the Mice, Princess Pirlipat, and the Land of Dolls. This book manages to tell a complicated story in readable and enjoyable format.
Perhaps one of my favorite illustrations is this one in which we get just a glimpse of a creature we should be familiar with from Where The Wild Things Are, a widely popular Maurice Sendak book.
