About the author: Jan Brett, the acclaimed, #1 New York Timesbestselling author-illustrator, beloved for her folk-tale retellings such as The Mittenand The Three Snow Bears, returns this fall with a reimagining of a Christmas classicin JAN BRETT’S THE NUTCRACKER(Putnam Books for Young Readers; on sale November 2, 2021). With over 42 million books in print, Jan Brett is renowned for her exquisite art which is universally recognized as being among the finest in children’s books today. In JAN BRETT’S THE NUTCRACKER, she makes this familiar story her own, by setting it in snowy Russia and adding whimsical touches to favorite elements of the traditional ballet. 

About the book: When Marie and her brother Fritz receive a special Christmas nutcracker from their uncle, Marie immediately feels something magical. This feeling is only the beginning of the epic adventure she goes on with the Nutcracker—into the cabinet, through the battle with the mice, and finally to the magical land of the Sugar Plum Fairy.“Of the many hours I have spent listening to music in Symphony Hall in Boston, Tchaikovsky’s The Nutcrackerbrings the most vivid imaginings,” says Jan Brett.“With E. T. A. Hoffmann’s 1816 story The Nutcracker and the Mouse Kingand happy memories of the Nutcracker ballet as my guide, this book is my visualization of Tchaikovsky’s enchanted music...The music also reminds me of trips to Saint Petersburg, so a Russian setting seemed perfect...I hope this book transports readers through magical sights and sounds as the music of The Nutcracker Suite does for me.”The Norman Rockwell Museumin Stockbridge, MAwill alsofeature Jan’s work in a special solo exhibit“JanBrett: Stories Near and Far" November 13th to March 6th 2022.
