nutcrackerThis book is one that tells the story of The Nutcracker and the illustrations are all crocheted figures of the characters from the beloved Christmas story. In addition to the photos of the figures there is also instructions on how you can make your own set of figures for the holidays!

I received a free e-copy of this book in order to write this review. I was not otherwise compensated.
