Adorable. That's a fancy word for cute Feb. 7 2008
By Julie Neal - Published on
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
A little misunderstanding fuels the plot in this cute "I Can Read" book, rated for beginning readers ages 4 through 8. Fancy Nancy makes friends with the new boy in her class, who comes all the way from Paris. Nancy, who loves everything French, keeps trying to help Robert fit in to a new country. She's puzzled when Robert seems more interested in books about cowboys.

Nancy is as charming as ever, with her girly-girl clothes and curlicue hair. She uses big words, and then says that the word is a fancy version of something simpler: "I am very perplexed. That's a fancy word for mixed up." At the end of the book is a list of all the "fancy words" used in the story, with their definitions.

Like the other Fancy Nancy titles, the cover has glittery sparkles on the artwork and letters.

can you read as fancy as nancy? March 12 2008
By M. Klink - Published on
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
My younger daughter loves the fancy nancy books. so as an I can read book, I figured she would love it and she did. I do recommend you read with your child the french words in the back of the book before reading the story, this should help sort out the foreign language vocabulary from the I can read level vocabulary. and this is why I only rate 4 stars, as a parent you expect certain consistency's from such a well known and trusted institution as I can read books, thus when I had my daughter read this book to me and she was stuck on the french words of which there are quite a few in this book I was troubled. when I corrected her on french pronunciation she then tried to take those same lessons on the the english words. I should mention both my husband and are are polyglots and our children can speak some french, we had not introduced written french into their education yet.

Fancy! April 25 2008
By J. bonicelli - Published on
Format: Paperback
My daughter LOVES Fancy Nancy. This book is one of her favorites. She thinks it is neat to learn a couple of fancy French words. She says them all the time. It also has a couple of good vocabulary words for her in English. That's what's so neat about the Fancy Nancy books. They have great vocabulary words and they always explain what they mean. The illustrations are WONDERFUL!

Marvelous (fancy for great) & hilarious (fancy for so funny)! April 27 2008
By Nancy - Published on
Format: Paperback
Really enjoyed this one, possibly the best of Nancy for us (--this is our third Nancy-book). I was surprised to find the Nancy stories so enjoyable. Was pleasantly surprised too to find this as a reader, and it has great story. My girls both like these (& this one), my non-fancy Tom-boy and my girl who likes to tell me that she likes girly stuff and boys stuff too! "I like Efry-ding!"

The Best Fancy Nancy Story Since the Original March 2 2008
By Timothy Haugh - Published on
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Recently, Ms. O'Connor has produced two Fancy Nancy books for the "I Can Read!" series. I was thrilled to see this because of have a young daughter named Nancy who is on the verge of learning to read. These books will be great for her.

I have to say, however, that, of the two, I like this one better. Fancy Nancy and the Boy from Paris is simply a great book. As always, the art is great. Plus, it has an excellent story with a great twist that still manages to fit the Fancy Nancy character perfectly. (Spoiler alert!) In this case, a new boy from Paris arrives to join Nancy's class. Nancy is thrilled because she loves all things French but it turns out that the boy is actually from Paris, Texas.

This book may have been written for a reading series but it is my favorite Fancy Nancy story since the first one. Any Fancy Nancy fan should have it, but so should anyone who simply likes a good children's story.
