The Nutcracker and the Mouse King: The Graphic Novel


The Nutcracker, my first graphic novel, is available for the first time here in my shop! This is the original Nutcracker story- it's not the ballet. It has an Alice in Wonderland feel, with lots of imagination and adventure. Great for all ages, but would suggest 6+! Each book in this listing comes with a special printed Ex Libris bookplate.

Natalie will sign this upon request but it may take a slightly (3-5 days more) longer time to receive the book.

"Natalie Andrewson brings E.T.A. Hoffmann’s surreal and fantastical story to life like never before in this vibrant graphic novel adaptation of the beloved Christmas classic, The Nutcracker and the Mouse King."

"Of all the gifts under the tree on Christmas Eve, only one captures Marie Stahlbaum's heart: a humble nutcracker ... As midnight nears, he comes to life, revealing a fairy-tale world of magic and wonder, wicked princesses, and fierce battles--and an ancient curse that can only be broken with the help of a true friend. With the evil Mouse King looming and her dream world threatened, Marie will have to find the strength to stand up for her nutcracker--no matter what it takes."

Published by First Second Books, Adapted by Natalie Andrewson from the original German Nutcracker story written by ETA Hoffmann.
