Product Description

From School Library Journal

PreSchool-K–Young Nancy, like her literary predecessors Eloise and Olivia, is a glamour queen dropped into a boring world–Nobody in my family is fancy at all. They never even ask for sprinkles. She determines to rescue her relatives from their humdrum existence by giving them lessons and accessorizing their mundane wardrobes. A situation that is charming when observed by adults in real life doesnt translate into a successful picture book. Children pretending to be fabulous creatures is appealing when it is innocent and unforced. This book, despite Glassers wonderfully energetic artwork, is ultimately a story told by adults for adults.–Kathleen Whalin, York Public Library, ME

From Booklist

PreS-Gr. 2. For Nancy, there's no such thing as too, too much; she loves her frilly bedroom, her lace-trimmed socks, and her pen with a plume. Nancy teaches her family how to be fancy, too. Then following Nancy's lead, the fancied-up family heads for a festive night out (at the local pizzeria). ^B A messy food mishap puts a damper on Nancy's joy, but her supportive family and the^B "I love you" at bedtime smoothes everything out. O'Connor, the author of the Nina, Nina Ballerina stories, delivers a delightful story of dress-up and cozy family love, with a charming protagonist who enjoys, and enjoys sharing, glamour. Nancy's perky narrative, in short, simple sentences, incorporates some "fancy" vocabulary for kids to absorb (stupendous, posh), along with a sense of the rewards of a family doing things together. The cheerfully colored art is aptly exuberant, a riotous blending of color and pattern and action. A book sure to appeal to girls' inner princesses--and inspire new ensembles and decor.

Format: Library Binding
This is my 6 year old's favorite book, so I've probably read it a few hundred times. Luckily, it is a great book and a fun read. The illustrations are absolutely wonderful, and the ending is very sweet. Definitely recommend this book to any girls who like to be fancy!

By Steven R. McEvoy HALL OF FAMETOP 100 REVIEWER on Sept. 3 2009
Format: Hardcover
Fancy Nancy books were recommended to us both by family and by readers of my blog. They are fantastic books to help children develop a more diverse vocabulary. In this the first of the Fancy Nancy Books, Nancy helps her family dress up fancy and they head out for a night on the town. But sometimes things do not go the way you expect. She does teach her family to be fancy, and they do go out, but Nancy has an accident and does not feel very fancy anymore. This is a wonderful little story, in an oversized picture book with fantastic illustrations. The book is as fancy as the person it features.

My little granddaughter went through a phase where less was definitely not more. If one necklace was good, six were better, and she wouldn't leave home without them and her clip-on earrings, bracelets, and more. She just loves Fancy Nancy, and she's glad that her own family is willing to be fancied up too. What I like is the parents' unconditional support of their little girl!

My two-year-old daughter and I love this book. She likes to try to use Nancy's fancy words. It is way too cute!
