About the Book

This Christmas, join a young girl and her grandmother as they embark on a holiday adventure to see The Nutcracker together! Her grandmother, known as Grand Jeté, was once a prima ballerina and danced in The Nutcracker herself, and now she’s sharing the magic of this special ballet. Former prima ballerina Allegra Kent and bestselling Fancy Nancy illustrator Robin Preiss Glasser collaborate to create an inspiring and festive tale for the littlest dancers and Nutcracker fans everywhere.

"The detailed illustrations, featuring the New York City Ballet’s Nutcracker costumes and sets, are joyous and bubbly."  — Kirkus Reviews

Grand Jeté is an expert on everything elegant and makes sure to always model the proper etiquette of a poised ballerina. Her granddaughter wants to be just like her one day.

Take a bow!

Straight spine.

Look your best.

And always carry flowers!

Follow the pair as they embark on an unforgettable trip to their favorite theater to see The Nutcracker—sharing the spirit of ballet wherever they go.
