Lovely, sad, special, whimsical, and philosophical - all at once. Highly recommend.

This retelling serves as a prequel to the Nutcracker. The story is imaginative and sometimes dark, weaving in several other fairy tales. Maguire saves the best for last in this one - if you are looking for a retelling of the Nutcracker, don't skip part three.
