Nutcracker NoelAuthor: Kate McMullan
Illustrator: Jim McMullan
Published: 1996 Harper Collins Canada, Limited
ISBN: 0062059106

Snappy dialogue and hilariously realistic body language bring to life a story that clearly illustrates the magic of a carefully crafted perspective. Generously sprinkled with subtle humour (for both adult and child), this is a year round family favourite.

We’ve received a lovely, meaty note from author, Kate McMullen. Check it out here.
