Not a parody or re-telling like the cover implies. Has nothing to do with the Nutcracker at all. It's about a farm duck's first winter and she's trying to find out about Christmas and sets off on her own. She is attacked by a fox but gets away. The story ends with a Christmas gathering of her farm friends. She does get a nutcracker toy as her gift, but that is the only reference at all to the Nutcracker. Pretty pictures. Lame story. Good book for kids who can't read to look through.
Well, the first reviewer didn't like this book but I love it. The bright color illustrations by the Author are so clever and cute. Clara the Duck is trying to understand Christmas and in her quest she is followed by a hungry fox. When she finally finds sanctuary in the barn, she finds the animals are getting ready to dance - The Nutcracker. Clara the Duck gets to play Clara. Clara finds the true meaning of Christmas with her new friends. Is this A Christmas Carol or even The Nativity, NO. But it is a cute Christmas story for young children who love animal stories.
