Once Upon A Winter: A Steampunk Nutcracker

Whether you like Steampunk or not (or whether you know what it is or not), you're bound to love this quirky Nutcracker. It's got everything the traditional ballet has, but it doesn't stop there. It takes the original's sweetness and ramps it up with a whole lot of off-beat characters - grubby Angels, a terrifying Drosselmeier, and inebriated fairies that have to scraped off the sides of buildings with a spatula. With a liberal lacing of humor, a spunky and funny heroine, and a visually stunning atmosphere, this is a great Christmas read!
