Mia’s Nutcracker Ballet

Robin Farley
Illustrated by Olga & Aleksey Ivanov
Harper, an imprint of HarperCollins Publishers, 2013

From the back of the book: “Sashay, plié, Nutcracker Ballet! Mia the ballerina kitten stars in the whimsical retelling of the dance classic.”

For the ballet lover in your family, this cute book is for them! Mia receives a nutcracker as a present from her grandpa and is disappointed with it – that is, until Grandpa tells her the story of the Nutcracker Ballet. Mia’s imagination runs wild and she dreams she is Clara, her ballerina sister is the Sugar Plum Fairy and her friends play all the other parts.

This book is adorably illustrated with a clever retelling of the classic story. My only issue with it was seeing Clara’s sister with such skinny legs. I prefer my girl-kitties to be a bit on the fluffy side.

Rating 3 out of 5 paws – a very cute book, easy to understand and enjoy, a perfect book to read before going to your local holiday play of The Nutcracker.

    That is so cute, I want to get it for my great-niece next year. Joanie is glad you like a girl kitty with some meat on her 🙂
