This is no ordinary Nutcracker...This time, it's Fritz's story. The traditional Nutcracker tale gets turned on its head in this rollicking Christmas adventure, based on the hit musical "A Nutcracker Christmas" by the popular children's rock star Ralph Covert ("Ralph's World") and playwright G. Riley Mills. It includes a CD of songs from the musical, and a read-aloud track with the music and story woven together. It's a musical picture book! All Fritz wants to do on Christmas Eve is play his video game, Mouse Hunter 5000, but when he breaks his sister's nutcracker, his game gets locked in the toy closet. Fritz is furious until an amazing thing happens: the evil Mouse King from his video game comes to life ...and so does the Nutcracker! The Mouse King is determined to ruin Christmas, and Fritz and the Nutcracker will have to join forces - and take a magical journey-to stop him.
