Frequently bought together
“Enchanting, mystical and filled with wonder, it’s the perfect holiday fairy tale for grown-ups.” -- People
“An inventive, and often dark, retelling of the holiday classic.” -- BuzzFeed News
“Continuing his tradition of rewriting fairy tales with an arch eye and offbeat point of view, Maguire turns his attention to Lewis Carroll and Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland…A brilliant and nicely off-kilter reading of the children’s classic, retrofitted for grown-ups—and a lot of fun.” -- Kirkus Reviews (starred review)

I enjoyed the story from beginning to end. I have a vague idea about what The Nutcracker is about from this book, but that play/ballet I saw...well, that Mother Ginger just threw me! Now I am very interested in learning more. This book is the backstory to The Nutcracker.
This was a great book to read around Christmas. I hope my friend enjoys it as much as I did. I might have liked it more because I don't know the original story.

Quick delivery though and value overall though. The book itself is a fun read. Definitely much less involved than the Wicked series.
