Read full description of the books:
Read the full story of the gallant Nutcracker Prince, and revel in the magic of a delightful Christmas tradition.
The Nutcracker: The Classic Christmas Fantasy features two rare versions of the holiday tale that was adapted for Tchaikovsky’s classic ballet, The Nutcracker. E.T.A. Hoffmann’s original fairy tale, “The Nutcracker and the Mouse King,” published in 1816 and Alexandre Dumas’s interpretation, “The History of a Nutcracker,” published in 1845.
Lavishly illustrated with hundreds of vintage drawings from the nineteenth century, this beautifully designed book kindles the spirit of the holidays through its timeless tale of an enchanted nutcracker made human through the love of a young girl, and the couple’s magical journey through exotic lands of sweets and spices.
The set also contains a decorative 8-inch nutcracker figurine!

Read information about the authorErnst Theodor Wilhelm Hoffmann, better known by his pen name E. T. A. Hoffmann (Ernst Theodor Amadeus Hoffmann), was a German Romantic author of fantasy and horror, a jurist, composer, music critic, draftsman and caricaturist. His stories form the basis of Jacques Offenbach's famous opera The Tales of Hoffmann, in which Hoffman appears (heavily fictionalized) as the hero. He is also the author of the novella The Nutcracker and the Mouse King, on which the famous ballet The Nutcracker is based. The ballet Coppélia is based on two other stories that Hoffmann wrote, while Schumann's Kreisleriana is based on Hoffmann's character Johannes Kreisler.
Hoffmann's stories were very influential during the 19th century, and he is one of the major authors of the Romantic movement.
