In light of our special ILLUSTRATED edition WinterDream release yesterday, we were lucky enough to have author Chantal Gadoury share her dream cast (and production crew) for her spin on the tale of Clara and the Nutcracker Prince!
If you're not familiar with the story of The Nutcracker (which, if you're not—WinterDream is a lovely introduction to), here is each cast member from the top row, left to right:
Mouse King, Clara, Uncle Drosselmeyer
Lady Irina, Viscount Yakov Petrayaev
Marzipan, Anton, Masha
And the Nutcracker himself, of course—
As a director, Chantal says she would consider Chris Weitz (New Moon), or maybe even Steven Spielberg, who, like this timeless tale needs no introduction—and whose specialties are instant classics!
Purchase your illustrated version of WinterDream for a limited time, here! It'll make a perfect gift for the fairytale lover in your life!
