The Nutcracker and the Mouse King (SOLD)

NEW Hardback Picture Book :   The Nutcracker and the Mouse King by ETA Hoffman, illustrated by Gail deMarcken

In this gorgeous telling of The Nutcracker, Gail deMarcken brings E.T.A. Hoffmann's richly enchanting world to life. With beautifully detailed illustrations, the story of  The Nutcracker and the Mouse King will become an instant classic . It's a story readers of all ages will delight in.
Discerning use of full-page spreads and decorative border art allays Maysen's substantial text in this glowing interpretation. DeMarcken's detail-rich watercolors are marked by a vibrant palette, while the attention paid to the mechanisms of toys and to dolls' facial expressions further emphasizes the fantastical nature of the story. This is a loyal and energetic version, best for read-aloud in multiple sittings, given the length of the text. Ages 4 — 8
