peep inside and follow the adventures of a little girl and her Nutcracker doll one magical Christmas night. The cut-out pages enhance the magic and Christmassy feel, with delicate snowflakes, and fairy magic, and enable the reader to peep inside a palace made from sweets. Delicate cutaways and holes to peep through create a magical filigree effect.
