The Nutcracker Reviews


"The wonder, excitement and strangeness are all there, while first-person narrative adds poignancy and an inescapable sense of loss. Ian Beck's distinctive illustrations powerfully capture the changes of mood in this beautifully designed book" The Bookseller "Ian Beck comes close to creating a theatrical performance on paper ... It's magical" TES
