Item Description...
Outline ReviewIn their lavish adaptation of E.T.A. Hoffmann's original story about the cursed nutcracker that comes to life on Christmas, paper engineer artists David and Noelle Carter create a marvelously theatrical setting that will have young readers shouting "bravo" in wonder and smitten delight. In the classic multilayered tale, the ugly wooden nutcracker fights a fierce battle with the evil seven-headed mouse king, then takes young Marie, the girl who was kind to him when he was broken, on a magical tour of Christmas Wood and Candytown. By earning Marie's love, the spell over the nutcracker is broken--he turns back into a prince and marries Marie.

Every child should experience the holiday tradition of The Nutcracker; for those who are too squirmy to sit through an entire production of Tchaikovsky's ballet, The Nutcracker Suite, this elaborate pop-up is a gratifying, three-dimensional introduction to the fanciful holiday story. David Carter is a master of pop-up art, as evidenced in The 12 Bugs of Christmas, Jingle Bugs, Giggle Bugs, and his many other extraordinary books. (Ages 4 to 7) --Emilie Coulter

Product Description

David and Noelle Carter have created a lavish adaptation of the classic Nutcracker story, complete with scenes reminiscent of theater sets, lush jewel-toned artwork, and spectacular paper engineering. Children of all ages will cherish this exquisite pop-up for generations to come.

The Nutcracker is a holiday tradition for children and adults alike. There are several versions of this Christmas tale, and most people are familiar with the simple adaptation for the ballet. The original, written by E. T. A. Hoffman, presents a more intriguing and complex story featuring a seven-headed Mouse King, the curse of the Hard Nut, and Princess Pirlipat. We hope you enjoy our version of the wonderful original Nutcracker story.

Worth Buying  Dec 14, 2003
I borrowed this book from the library for my child and we enjoyed it a lot. I enjoyed the story w/i a story about Princess Pirlipat. The pop ups are elaborate and delicate. It's definitely for a child who understands that the book needs to be treated gently. My daughter loves the Nutcracker and this book is a treat for any child who does.
Delicate & Elaborate Pop-up Version  Dec 29, 2000
This version of the Nutcracker would be most appropriate for an older child who would be patient enough to listen to a longer version of this classic story and who would be gentle enough not to abuse the delicate pop-ups. The format of this version has the text on the left side of the page, then on the right side, there is a "box" to open which reveals a three-dimensional pop up. Often the pop up has several layers of depth within each illustration and usually it also has a lever to pull which makes something happen within the pop up (like one makes a toy ballerina spin and another makes the waves and swan boat move back and forth). The text itself is rather extensive; there are several paragraphs of story per page. Because there is only one pop-up for such a long segment of text, one draw back is that the listener must be willing to imagine a lot of the events and be content with fewer illustrations. Overall though, this is a very nice pop-up adaptation of a timeless classic--the pop-ups manage to capture some of magical beauty of the ballet, and it would be a great addition to any child's Christmas library.
