The Nutcracker

E.T.A.Hoffmann, ETA Hoffman, Sanna Annukka

Cornerstone, Hutchinson

“Come, children, and see what Christmas has bought you this year”


The Nutcracker is a Christmas staple as much as pigs in blankets or brussels sprouts, having been immortalised by Tchaikovsky’s ballet

On Christmas Eve, Fritz and Marie excitedly await the arrival of Godfather Drosselmeier and the marvellous gifts he brings for them every year. When Marie discovers a curious nutcracker doll among the presents, she suddenly finds herself caught up in an age-old battle before being transported to a magical world of sugar-frosted castles, chocolate kings, and true love.

A classic Christmas tale written in 1816, this beautiful edition features stunning illustrations by Finnish illustrator Sanna Annukka, its hardback and cloth bound with illustrations on every page, making it a book to treasure.
