Let the holiday revelry begin with The Nutcracker and Other Christmas Tales, a deluxe treasury that celebrates the Christmas season and the warm tidings that we associate with it. It features 10 heartwarming holiday stories including the title tale, Alexander Dumas's renowned rendering of the E.T.A. Hoffmann original that inspired the beloved ballet.
The contents also includes works by Louisa May Alcott, L. M. Montgomery, Kate Douglas Wiggin, and L.
Frank Baum, as well as the full text of Charles Dickens's classic A Christmas Carol, which helped to establish the Christmas holiday as we celebrate it today.
