Fossil Mountain Publishing Announces that 2018 is the Year of The Nutcracker

Visions of sugar plums danced in their heads. All across the globe little ballerinas and pint-sized soldiers, 6 – 12 years old, audition for the opportunity to perform in their town's local production of The Nutcracker. During the months of August and September, Nutcracker auditions are held in every major country. With its lavish costumes, exquisite dancers, and brilliant musical compositions, young ballet students dream of dancing alongside the professional cast.

Many productions cast over 100 children for parts in the Party Scene, Battle Scene, and as Polichinelles with Mother Ginger. Depending on how many qualified boys audition, girls sometimes are cast in the roles of the boy dancers in Party.

This year, with the addition of Disney's upcoming movie, The Nutcracker and the Four Realms, audiences will be able to enjoy, The Nutcracker, throughout the holiday season through books, movies and, of course, live performances. We at Fossil Mountain Publishing encourage families to indulge!

To get your tween, 9 – 14, ready for Nutcracker Season, Fossil Mountain Publishing is excited to present, Prince Dustin and Clara: Deep in the Black Forest, a retelling of The Nutcracker. The author, Daniel Lee Nicholson, performed in The Nutcracker for 10 years. Nicholson was sure to include the essence of the ballet, including many of the dance scenes, in the book. As Clara and Prince Dustin, the Nutcracker Prince, race to escape the wrath of Egon, they encounter one adventure after another deep in the Black Forest, the setting of the Snow Scene. Nicholson incorporated much of the allure of the Black Forest in the story.

Nicholson's tale is both fantasy and adventure to appeal to both boys and girls; dancers and non-dancers alike. Prince Dustin and Clara: Deep in the Black Forest is available now at your favorite online and retail bookseller.
