Charming and Unexpected


(4 stars)

I had only known the Nutcracker story through watching the ballet. I was interested in reading/listening to the source, which went into much more detail about the battle between the Nutcracker and Mouse King. The reader did an excellent job, adding to the charm of this delightful fairy tale.

Better than the play!


(5 stars)

Wow! I didn’t know that the nutcracker play came from a story written before it. I love the back story of the Prince Nutcracker and how he was brought to the present day of the story. Great reader! Thanks so much!

Odd, Macobra tale.


(2 stars)

if you like Alice in Wonderland you will LOVE this tale. If you are looking for a little tike's' sweet Ballet story, know that "The Nutcracker" has been simplified and made more "Merry"

Great read
