A classic Christmas tale with breathtaking illustrations by An Leysen! It's Christmas Eve and Clara and her brother Fritz are excited! Every year, uncle Drosselmeier brings them special Christmas gifts. This year, Clara gets a wooden soldier. It's a nutcracker and Fritz thinks he looks a bit silly, but Clara falls in love with his big and kind eyes. And that night, she discovers her new friend can do a lot more than just crack nuts. He used to be a brave soldier who fell in love with a real princess... . In this magical picture book, An Leysenn gives the classic Christmas story by E.T.A. Hoffmann a new look. Her evocative art will transport you to the wonderful world of the mean mouse king and the beautiful Sugar Plum Fairy. For children ages 5 and up, and for everyone who loves fairy tales!
An Leysen works as an art teacher in Turnhout, Belgium, where she teaches design and fashion. She is married to the visual artist Jef Faes and they have a daughter, Louise, who has art running through her veins too. In her spare time An likes to - what else? - read and draw.
