Readers of all ages will be enchanted by this gloriously illustrated edition of a beloved holiday classic. Award-winning Russian artist Maria Mikhalskaya's images recapture the spirit of E. T. A. Hoffmann's 1816 fairy tale, which served as the basis for Tchaikovsky's musical interpretation. But the original, less-familiar drama, however, possesses elements of a stranger, darker, more intriguing nature. This deluxe heirloom edition offers the chance to make an old tale into a new seasonal tradition.
