What's Nutcracked About

Publisher Summary

Christmastime, ballet, and magic! An original take on The Nutcracker ballet! Georgie has waited for this moment her whole life—to dance the part of Clara in The Nutcracker ballet. And when she finally gets the part, it’s like a dream come true. . . . Literally. Every time Georgie dances with the Nutcracker doll, she leaves the ballet studio and enters a world where everything around her—the old wooden furniture, the Christmas tree, the carefully wrapped presents—is larger than life. It’s so magical, Georgie can’t wait to return again and again. Then the Nutcracker’s magic seeps into the real world, putting Georgie’s friend in danger. Everything is falling apart, and it’s almost Christmas! Can Georgie save her friend, the Nutcracker, and most of all, herself?

Who Wrote Nutcracked

author & illustrator
Susan Adrian

Susan Adrian is a fourth-generation Californian who now lives in the beautiful Big Sky country of Montana. She began ballet late–at age eight–but got to fulfill her dream of playing Clara in <i>The Nutcracker </i>when she was thirteen, before joining the Sacramento Ballet. Later she got a degree in English from the University of California, Davis. These days she’s settled in as a writer, scientific editor, and mom. When she’s not with her family, she keeps busy researching crazy stuff, traveling, and writing more books. She still sees <i>The Nutcracker</i> every year she can, and tries really hard not to act out all the parts. Follow Susan on Twitter at @susan_adrian, and visit her on the Web at
