Behind the walls of Saint Petersburg's famous theater live the world's tiniest dancers - including Esmeralda, who has finally been accepted into the ranks of the Russian Mouse Ballet Company. A new ballet called The Nutcracker is set to debut at Christmastime, and Esmeralda has won the role of Clara. But when she learns that The Nutcracker features mice as villains, Esmeralda fears that the city's ballet-loving mice won't come to see it. Will her first appearance onstage be her last?
Esmeralda finds an unlikely ally in nine-year-old Irina, the daughter of the custodian tasked with ridding the theater of "vermin." Irina alone believes that the Mariinsky mice are special and decides to save their lives - and their production.
From the author of Garden Princess comes an inventive tale of drama, friendship, and adventure.
