Among Clara and Fredericks presents is a strange wooden nutcracker, carved in the shape of a young man. Frederick is rough with it but Clara plays at putting it to bed and nursing it for she is really fond of this rather ugly nutcracker. That night she dreams that the nutcracker leads all the toys in battle against an army of invading mice.

Clara throws her shoe at the Mouse King, saves the Nutcrackers life and releases him from a spell: he is now a handsome young man again instead of a wooden nutcracker. How the spell came to be cast upon him and how he had saved Princess Pirlipat from the vengeance of the mice is a story he tells Clara as he takes her with him to the Land of Sweets.Although it is as a ballet, with music by Tchaikovsky (Casse-Noisette) that The Nutcracker is famous the world over, its success is founded on the inspired fantasy of E.T.A.

Hoffmanns story, which is here retold for young readers of today.
