A modern take on the traditional Nutcracker story, based on "the hit the popular children's rock star Ralph Covert". (I hadn’t heard of either.) When Fritz (Clara's brother) breaks his sister's favorite nutcracker doll, he is left at home with a boring old neighbor and his favorite video game (Mouse Hunter 5000) is locked away. When Fritz sneaks his video game out and plays it, the Mouse King suddenly appears and Fritz and the now alive (and girl) Nutcracker have to save Christmas. The story is well done and the CD is a nice addition (I liked the Mouse King’s song “Let’s Ruin Christmas!”). The best part though is the amazing, awesomely detailed illustrations by Wilson Swain. (I really loved the antics of the fat white cat who accompanies them on their adventure!)
