In his newest adventure, Jake is making a special visit behind the scenes of the ballet with Richie's friend Allegra. The rehearsals for The Nutcracker are underway, and Jake has so much fun learning the basics of ballet. Pretty soon, he's spinning and leaping just like the dancers. As the beloved holiday story comes to life on stage, Jake has a hard time keeping out of the action! With its delightful illustrations that capture the excitement and grace of The Nutcracker ballet, this encore to Jake the Philharmonic Dog takes readers along with Jake as he continues to explore the arts.

Kindergarten-Grade 3–Jake, the canine protagonist in Jake the Philharmonic Dog (Walker, 2006), is introduced to a New York City ballet company as it gets ready for its annual performance of TheNutcracker at Lincoln Center. Readers get glimpses of the beloved ballet as Jake interferes with the company's rehearsals, but the book is really more about ballet in general than it is about The Nutcracker in particular. The stylish illustrations show the work of the improbably patient ballet master and the dancers as they try to resist the irrepressible pooch's efforts to join them onstage.–Virginia Walter, University of California, Los Angeles
