The Nutcracker

The Nutcracker

by Jane B. Mason
It's Christmas Eve and Marie has found a funny-looking nutcracker under the tree. Marie's godfather says this nutcracker once saved a beautiful princess from a horrible spell cast by the wicked Mouse Queen. But Nutcracker is in danger because the Mouse King seeks revenge! Now Nutcracker must face off against the seven-headed King of Mice -- and he needs Marie's help to win the battle!
