Overview

Read the full story of the gallant Nutcracker Prince, and revel in the magic of a delightful Christmas tradition.

The Nutcracker: The Classic Christmas Fantasy features two rare versions of the holiday tale that was adapted for Tchaikovsky's classic ballet, The Nutcracker. E.T.A. Hoffmann's original fairy tale, "The Nutcracker and the Mouse King," published in 1816 and Alexandre Dumas's interpretation, "The History of a Nutcracker," published in 1845.

Lavishly illustrated with hundreds of vintage drawings from the nineteenth century, this beautifully designed book kindles the spirit of the holidays through its timeless tale of an enchanted nutcracker made human through the love of a young girl, and the couple's magical journey through exotic lands of sweets and spices.

The set also contains a decorative 8-inch nutcracker figurine!
