KIRKUS REVIEW

The timeless tale of romance, suspicion, magic, and revenge is freshly retold, focusing on the feelings and actions of the characters: Dr. CoppÇlius as he comes to terms with his artistic gifts and broken dreams; Swanilda as she mischievously attempts to find the “daughter” of Dr. CoppÇlius; and Franz as he falls foolishly in love with a doll, but repents and wins Swanilda. The textured paintings—oil painting lavished across nubby tweeds, lace, brocades, and other fabric—highlight the events of this unforgettable story, sure to send balletomanes off in search of the nearest production of the ballet. (Picture book. 6-10)
