When the clock strikes midnight, Clara’s nutcracker toy takes her on a magical journey. Mice become soldiers, candy canes transform into dancers and an enchanted castle emerges out of the mist.
In this exquisitely crafted book inspired by Tchaikovsky’s ballet, familiar scenes are brought to life by Shobhna Patel‘s intricate lasercut pop-up illustrations.
More than a pop-up book, it’s a true piece of art.
