Product story

The classic story of a beautiful wooden nutcracker who magically comes to life when the clock strikes midnight. So begins an adventure featuring all of Tchaikovsky’s original characters: the soldier mice, the Sugar Plum Fairy, and of course a handsome prince.

Patel has invented a new paper-engineering technique called the 'paperscope', which is used for the first time in this book. Four pop-up paperscopes spring to life when the reader presses down to reveal the scene hidden within. The original ballet is recalled by the stage-like designs that jump out. The Nutcracker is made all the more extraordinary by Patel’s intricate laser-cut illustrations.

Suitable for readers: 6+
