The Nutcracker: Review and Give Away

Up this celebration of the beginning of the holiday season, we have the beloved tale of The Nutcracker.  This edition illustrated by Maurice Sendak is sure to be a great addition to your holiday library.

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.

Now for the are the "rules".  To be entered in the drawing:
1. Make a comment on this post
2. Join one of my Facebook groups:
If you join more than one group you will get an entry for each one.
3. Follow Rudolph Ramblings.
So you could potentially get your name in the drawing 5 times. If you already are part of the Facebook groups please include that in your post and I will give you an entry for that. Also the same goes for following Rudolph Ramblings...just make sure you mention it so I can include your name again for it!
The drawing will be done on Friday November 30th so please get your entries in early!!  Thanks and good luck!
