Two stories, both kind of fairytales in a way. One about a nutcracker of course who was really a prince, the other about a fairy who visited two children.

There are many versions of Hoffman's classic Christmas story, but I enjoyed this one immensely due to the dreamlike drawings of Scott Gustafson. It's like being in a little shop off a crooked alleyway, where a clockmaker's sign hangs over the entrance. Old world mixed with enchantment.

Looking at armed mice dressed as 17th century musketeers or gingerbread cookies come to life was a true delight. The colors are vibrant and if you happen to be playing Tchaikovsky in the background, the better. This is a small book for the child's hand and makes the perfect stocking stuffer for the holidays.

This book is an example of fantasy. The story told makes the reader believe that the young girls grandfather has a nephew who turns into a nutracker and then she ends up saving him. The story is not possible, but the writter does an excellent job engaging the reader in this story. I would use this book in an intermediate classroom. The main type of media used is acrylics.
