The Nutcracker and the Mouse King & The Christmas Magic Review and Giveaway...

I am so excited to share this review and giveaway with you all! First I want to tell you about The Nutcracker and the Mouse King! I love the beautiful pictures in this awesome hardcover book! Gail de Marcken brings E.T.A. Hoffmann's richly enchanting world to life. It's a story readers of all ages will delight in. What a great classic to have in our home! Next I would like to tell you about The Christmas Magic! I love Santa's bunny slippers! This book is so cute! Far, far North, when the nights are longest and the stars shine brightest, Santa begins to prepare for his big night of giving. He gathers his reindeer, feeds them parsnips and berries, and polishes his bells and his sled. Then lovingly, he chooses toys for every child in the world. For Santa loves them all, and he knows what each child at heart wants most. Then, with the thrum of magic that makes reindeers fly, he spreads the Christmas joy and warmth throughout the world--as he always has --
and always will until the end of time.



Now here is the exciting part...


Two winners will receive both copies:
  • The Nutcracker and the Mouse King
