Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Fancy Nancy is back! And when her family decides to get a dog, she's certain she can be fancier than ever. After all, a papillon—a small, delicate, fluffy dog—is the ultimate accessory. But her family wants a large, plain dog. How unglamorous!

With Fancy Nancy's trademark humor and warmth, Nancy discovers that real fanciness does not depend simply on appearance but more on a genuine joie de vivre, which is a fancy phrase for having lots of fun.

Review:

"Fancy Nancy fans will loudly cheer her return and will be happy to discover that she has not lost a lick of her joie de vivre — or her glitter and glam. 'I am ecstatic. (That's a fancy word for happy),' she announces, explaining that her family is getting a puppy, 'a real one,' she adds, as Glasser creates a comical scene of Nancy drafting her sister into the role of pretend-pooch (drawing on a noise with indelible marker). Nancy initially hopes for a dog like Jewel, the papillon that belongs to her elegant neighbor. But Nancy's practical parents think this breed is too small and delicate, and instead suggest hardier dogs; 'I shake my head. Too big. Too brown. Too plain. Sometimes it's hard being the only fancy person in the family.' Yet when she dog-sits for Jewel, she discovers that the prim and proper pooch does not enjoy romping or fetching like Nancy's friends' dogs. She realizes that Jewel's breed is not the perfect kind for her family. Her parents' idea to visit an animal shelter, however, brings about the perfect solution. Nancy spies spirited and smart Frenchy ('a La Salle spaniel,' according to her father), who turns out to be just what the family needs. Glasser's fittingly fancy flourishes and abundant humor once again capture this young heroine's exuberant personality and delightfully exaggerated facial expressions. Author and artist make a sparkling encore performance. Ages 4-7." Publishers Weekly (Starred Review) (Copyright Reed Business Information, Inc.)

About the Author

Since the publication of Fancy Nancy, Jane O'Connor's closet now boasts so many boas, tiaras, and sparkly ensembles that sometimes friends do not recognize her on the street. She still resides (that's a fancy word for lives) in New York City with her family and their canine companion, Arrow.
