New Holiday Titles from Parragon Books

November is here and we're personally getting ready for all of the festivities during this holiday season. The folks over at Parragon Books sure know how to get us all geared up for Christmas with some of their most recent titles!

The closest of friendships broken by a cold-hearted Snow Queen. A cruel spell and an impossible task. A dangerous journey with a magical reunion. This book is a sparkling retelling of Hans Christian Andersen's classic fairy tale filled with bravery and love, and is illustrated by Charlotte Cooke.

Being a fan of Hans Christian Andersen while growing up, I have to admit that The Snow Queen was one that I never did get the chance to read. It was nice to be introduced to the story at the same time as my son. The physical design of the book is stunning, beginning right with the hardcover dust jacket, which displays beautiful white glitter embellishments to represent snow. The story has the true markings of a fairy tale, complete with good verses evil, magical journeys, and loyal friendships. This book is more of a winter season story, rather than an actual Christmas one, but I still recommend adding it to your reading list this holiday season!

On Christmas Eve, Clara receives a very special gift - a wooden nutcracker. Join Clara as she steps into a magical world of toy soldiers and beautiful fairies in this lavishly illustrated Christmas tale. This book is based off the story by E. T. A. Hoffman and is beautifully illustrated by Valeria Docampo.

I was so happy to see The Nutcracker included in this month's Parragon releases! This has always been one of my favorite Christmas stories since I was a little girl. It's a wonder why I didn't add this to our collection sooner. The dancing, the music, there is so much to enjoy when taking in the story, so I was happy to welcome it to my son's library of holiday books. This version is illustrated by Valeria Docampo and is absolutely stunning with gorgeous holiday colors throughout. Children will read about those infamous moments in the story–the Sugar Plum Fairy, a Battle with the Mouse King, and of course that beloved toy soldier that Clara receives from her Godfather.
