The Nutcracker and the Mouse King: The Graphic Novel
This book combines two of my favorite things, Christmas and nutcrackers. On Christmas Eve nothing should be stirring around the house, not even a mouse, but this is not the case in Marie’s house. A very curious nutcracker comes to life on Christmas Eve, which eventually leads to chaos. Like most magical fairy tales, the good guys have to defeat the bad guys and the Nutcracker’s mission is to defeat the great Mouse King and save Christmas for boys and girls. The Nutcracker will need help from his one true friend to break the curse. He must find out who can help him save Christmas and break the curse of the Mouse King.
This is a hilariously illustrated graphic novel. I love the illustrations of the mice fighting and the chaos that breaks out with the Mouse King. Who knew mice did not like Christmas so much? I like the bright and detailed illustrations. Some of the speech bubbles and text can be challenging to read, but overall this is a great story to read at Christmastime, especially if you like nutcrackers!
