The Nutcracker

It’s Christmas eve and Marie the little girl finds a nutcracker under the tree. Marie and her family decided they were going to use the nutcracker for diner. But when the nutcracker gets to Marie’s brother Fritz he smashes the nutcrackers head and breaks the three front teeth! That night the nutcracker came alive and had to battle a evil rat family. Read the rest of the book to find out what happens next!!

I love this book because it was interesting to read. The descriptions are full of colorful words. I also enjoyed this book because it took me on a adventure with Marie's family on Christmas Eve! I really want to see the movie or the play as the book inspired me.

I recommend this book to people who like fairy tales. I do not recommend this book to the age under kindergarten because they might get scared or might not know a few words. I also recommend this book to fun loving moms who like to read to their children. You might be interested if you like the magic of Christmas!
