It is a cold and rainy evening when Gran gives her granddaughter something special: tickets to the ballet. Her granddaughter is reluctant to go. The weather is terrible and they have to wear fancy, uncomfortable clothes. But as the curtains rise on The Nutcracker, the girl's eyes light up as she's introduced to the magic of the theater. The bright costumes, the intricate dances, the magical music, and a new friend all combine to captivate the girl and to bring color to an otherwise dreary evening. Waltz of the Snowflakes is Elly MacKay at her finest, mixing her acclaimed paper-cut artwork with vibrant colors in this whimsical, dreamlike, and inspiring wordless picture book. A must-have for any ballet- and theater-obsessed reader and the perfect gift to be shared during the holidays or any time of year when the world outside needs a little bit of color and vibrancy.

The story begins on a cold and dreary December night when a grandmother surprises her reluctant granddaughter with tickets to the ballet. As the story (and ballet) unfolds with glittering colour and beauty, captivating both the young girl and the reader. This book would make a great gift for everyone who cherishes their own family memories of the ballet and for anyone who wants to celebrate the beauty and magic of the season
