The Battle for Clockwise Castle
After being transported to an enchanted kingdom held captive under the tyrannical Rat King's rule, a group of orphans team up with the land's former prince-turned-nutcracker and a band of magical creatures to reclaim their home. A feminist, combat-heavy reimagining of Tchaikovsky's Nutcracker, The Battle for Clockwise Castle explores the power of uniting to fight for what matters most in this epic holiday tale.
