E.T.A. Hoffmann, Ralph Manheim

"A vintage, new and entire. one of many ten top illustrated kid's books of the year."
-- New York instances publication Review

The story of Nutcracker, written by way of E.T.A. Hoffmann in 1816, has involved and encouraged artists, composers, and audiences for nearly 200 years. It has retained its freshness since it appeals to the feel of ask yourself all of us share.

Maurice Sendak designed fabulous units and costumes for the Pacific Northwest Ballet's Christmas creation of Nutcracker and created much more wonderful images particularly for this e-book. He joined with the eminent translator Ralph Manheim to supply this illustrated version of Hoffmann's really good story, destined to develop into a vintage for all ages.

The global of Nutcracker is a global of pleasures. Maurice Sendak's paintings illuminates the delights of Hoffmann's tale during this wealthy and tantalizing treasure.
