MEDIA REVIEWS
Intricate paper engineering and striking silhouette art make this a really special retelling of the famous ballet. * The Bookseller *
The Nutcracker is as much a part of Christmas as carols, mince pies and Santa Claus, and this is a truly beautiful version of the much-loved story. Niroot Puttapipat places striking silhouettes in black and white, with highlights of gold, red and yellow, against richly coloured background scenes and each page [...] is a piece of drama. The story concludes with a breath-taking pop-up scene. -- Andrea Reece * Love Reading 4 Kids *
The story is brought to life in a spectacular pop-up finale. A story for the whole family to enjoy. * Angels & Urchins *
This magical pop-up edition of the classic Christmas story captured my heart from the front cover, with its illustration so life-like that I imagined it raised off the page. This, I knew, was going to be a very special read indeed. [...] Here is a classic story beautifully retold to the highest standard and with a stunning finale but remember to turn the page and get right to the very end or you will miss the wonderful conclusion that awaits. * Armadillo Magazine *
Niroot Puttapipat's The Nutcracker is full of drama, vivid scenes created out of striking silhouettes against richly coloured backgrounds and with a wonderful pop-up to finish. * Books For Keeps *
This Christmas classic comes to life thanks to Niroot Puttapipat's beautiful pop-up illustrations. Introduce little ones to this timeless ballet the easy way. * The Guardian *
