By Steven R. McEvoy HALL OF FAMETOP 100 REVIEWER on Nov. 24 2010
Format: Hardcover
With each new Fancy Nancy novel my daughter's vocabulary grows, but so does her desire to play dress up and be attired in fancy outfits. In this story Fancy Nancy is trying to save up money for a new fan she wants. She decides to open a Fashion Boutique, and she is selling some of her old accessories and outfits to raise the money she needs. She is also helping prepare for her little sister's birthday party. Nancy steps up in this one and rises up to the occasion to help rescue her sister's birthday party from being rained out. This is another great story in an incredible series.

Mystery Finally Solved! Oct. 24 2010
A Kid's Review - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
We've been fans of Fancy Nancy at our house since the original book came out, eagerly awaiting each new picture book (and now, the I Can Read series as the girls get older). Along the way, we've been introduced to her parents, grandparents, teacher, best friend, dog, neighbor...and of course, her little sister. But while everyone else has gotten a name in the various books (It's even Mr. and Mrs. Clancy, making our heroine "Fancy Nancy Clancy"!), we've been waiting and waiting to learn Nancy's little sister's name. And finally we have it! I won't ruin anyone's delight in finding it out for themselves, but Little Sister is a central character in this latest, totally delightful volume. In shopping for Little Sister's birthday party -- a pirate theme -- Nancy finds a lace fan that she wishes to purchase for herself, but has already spent all her money on a birthday gift for her sister. She decides to hold a garage sale -- well, no, that's not fancy enough for our heroine...she sets up a Fabulous Fashion Boutique in her yard to sell some of her old outfits and accessories in order to earn the money for her fan. Along the way, she sells a necklace that her Little Sister had her eye on. Despair on Little Sister's part leads to guilt on Nancy's part since she really wants her sister to be happy on her birthday. How Nancy works it all out, and helps make Little Sister's birthday party a big hit is the finale...but for us, the big payoff was learning Little Sister's name in this lovely new storybook.

Fabulous! Oct. 23 2010
By J. R. - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
Each new picture book that Ms. OConner writes is better than the next! My family couldn't wait to get the latest installment- this time, we finally find out what Nancy's little sister's name is! I'm not going to tell you- you'll have to get the book and look for yourself. What a treat! and the pictures are just as much fun as we've come to expect from our favorite book character. She is beginning to feel like a real person to us by now! We love her and her family, who always model just the right tone.

Great book for young girls! Dec 17 2011
By Working Mumma - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
My 2 year old daughter loves all the Fancy Nancy books, and this title was no exception! The characters are well developed and the illustrations really capture her attention despite her very young age. This series is helping me to raise a life long lover of reading! I recommend this book to any mom looking for quality books to purchase for their little girl.

Reviews by Patricia's Particularity Aug. 14 2012
By Patricia Leppla - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
It is Nancy's sister's birthday and she wants to have a Pirate Themed Birthday Party. How fun! While shopping for a birthday gift Nancy cannot decide what to get for her sister. However, she finds a fan that she must have for herself! To help raise money so she can buy this fancy fan, Nancy decides to sell some of her fancy cloths and things, creating a Fashion Boutique! Nancy's sister points out a necklace that she really likes and wants, however, Nancy needs money so she sells it to one of her friends. Having second thoughts, Nancy asks her friend to sell back the necklace so she can give it to her sister for her birthday. However, Nancy looses the money she gained for her fan, but gains the necklace for her sister just in time for her Pirate Birthday Party.

As with all Fancy Nancy books there is always an underlying, not so hidden, message - which is what I love about this series. You don't have to read between the lines to figure out what the author wants you to know. Obviously in this case O'Connor is sharing the lessons of selflessness and love. Fancy 'sacrifices' something she really wants to make sure that her sister has a fantastic birthday gift. Even though Nancy is not able to get her fan she finds happiness and fulfillment in her sister's happiness.

Out of all the Fancy Nancy books I believe that this one can be relateable to most children. The message of this installment can even cross over with boys - teaching them to be more selfless and caring for their family and friends.

Not My Daughter's Favorite Oct. 30 2010
By Timothy Haugh - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
My daughter, Nancy, remains a big fan of the Fancy Nancy series and, I must say, I enjoy reading them to her. As the oeuvre continues to grow, however, some books seem to rise to the top of the reading list while others falter. My Nancy's favorite is clearly the Posh Puppy followed closely by the original book and Bonjour Butterfly. This one does not seem likely to rise into the top three.

Of course, there's nothing wrong with the story which centers on Nancy's sister's birthday. Nancy uses nearly all her money to buy her sister a present and then opens a yard sale style boutique to raise money to buy herself something. It goes awry when her sister wants as her birthday present a necklace Nancy sells. Being a good sister, Nancy gets the necklace back and gives it as a present, as well as saves the day when rain threatens to spoil the party.

In the end, however, this story is just a bit flat. The artwork is still fantastic and it's pleasant enough, but it seems to lack the energy and nice, subtle moral of the other books. (In fact, I'm not sure I like the fact that Nancy ends up with her desire at the end.) Other than the big reveal of Nancy's sister's name--which I won't give away here--there's not a lot that's as memorable as Nancy's slip at the ice cream parlor, Jewel "gak"ing in Nancy's dress, or the butterfly garden in the other books.

Still, time will tell. Maybe the story will grow on my daughter and me, as some of the other books have done. I'm certainly happy to have it on the shelf.
