Puttapipat, Niroot (illustrator) The Nutcracker. PICTURE BOOK. Candlewick, 2016. 978-0763681258 $20.
Puttapitat turns the ballet into a lush landscape with silhouetted figures and a pop-up surprise.
As an adult, I think this is one of my favorite versions of the ballet. Were I a child, I think I would want something less lush.
GIFT – ADVISABLE. Cindy, Library Teacher
