Based on the New York City Ballets production of Balanchines version of The Nutcracker, this retelling springs to vibrant life in Docampos elegant, enchanting illustrations; her delicately curving lines, exaggerated shapes, and surreal palette are ideally suited to a story of glamorous holiday parties, fierce battles, and a magical journey to the Land of Sweets. An approachable retelling moves readers swiftly through the events of the story, always emphasizing the magic of the evening at hand (With a rumble and a shake, the tree began to grow before her eyes.... Marie had never seen anything so big). Given this storys connection to the ballet, plenty of time is spent in the Land of Sweets, where Docampo showcases peppermint-striped acrobats leaping with hoops, marzipan flautists en pointe, and other confectionary wonders to spark childrens imaginations. Ages 48. Illustrators agent: Mela Bolinao, MB Artists. (Sept.)
