Sendak brings new life to the story with his illustrations, which capture the sinister and silly aspects of E.T.A. Hoffman's classic. Children will be tantalized by the drama of the story and drawn into Marie's dreamlike world through Sendak's wonderful illustrations.

ETA Hoffman Nutcracker

by -

What I enjoy so much about this story is that it doesn't follow the ballet and the story is much expanded. It was a favorite of my children 30 years ago. I enjoy the illustrations by Maurice Sendak as well. Enjoy the story as it was originally written. If you want the ballet version, go to the ballet.
