Description

Because this book is part of the Dover Children’s Thrift Classics series, it is printed in large, easy-to-read type. Black and white illustrations enhance the story.

From the back cover: “Originally written for the early nineteenth century, the story of a little girl’s love for an enchanted nutcracker has delighted generations of readers, while the Tchaikovsky ballet based on the tale has become a holiday tradition.

“Now young children can enjoy this beloved classic in a specially abridged version by Bob Blaisdell. Included are all the wonderful scenes and characters: Christmas Eve at the Stahlbaum house, the arrival of Godpapa Drosselmeier and the presentation of the seven-headed Mouse King, the adventures in Christmas Wood, Toyland, Marzipan Castle and much more.

“Printed in large easy-to-read type and enhanced with 30 new illustrations by Thea Kliros, this Christmas favorite will entertain young readers the year round.”
