Summary, etc.:
"The Nutcracker is one of the world's most popular ballets, telling the captivating story of Clara and the Nutcracker prince as they journey into a land of fantasy. Inspired by Marius Petipa's sets for the original production of the ballet, Niroot Puttapipat's delicate silhouette illustrations dance across pale, watercolor-washed backgrounds in a unique interpretation. Starkly beautiful, this keepsake edition evokes all the magic and anticipation of Christmas Eve as Clara and the prince waltz between worlds and culminates in a 3-D spread bringing the dreamlike Land of Sweets to life"
