Happy Valentine's Day! We're celebrating the holiday by thinking ahead to Christmas. Who can blame us when we've just seen the jacket for Chris Barton's latest picture book, THE NUTCRACKER COMES TO AMERICA: HOW THREE BALLET-LOVING BROTHERS CREATED A HOLIDAY TRADITION? Isn't it exciting?! We love the dream-like quality of the illustrations by Cathy Gendron. Look for this title in the fall. Congratulations, Chris!
