Overview

Fancy Nancy thinks butterflies are simply exquisite.

And that is why she can't wait for her friend Bree's Butterfly Birthday. It's going to be the fanciest birthday party ever!

Will Nancy be able to overcome her disappointment?

Editorial Reviews

Frilly glamour queen Nancy can't wait for her best bud Bree's upcoming Butterfly Birthday. But wait! The most stylish birthday this side of Paris is scheduled for the very day of the 50th anniversary of Nancy's grandparents! Has fate ever struck a crueler blow? Fortunately, author Jane O'Connor and artist Robin-Preiss Glasser have concocted a picture book that successfully extracts Fancy Nancy from her Major Life Crisis.
Children's Literature - JoAn Watson Martin
Fancy Nancy never uses a short plain word when a fancier one will do. She loves to speak in French and is positive that butterflies understand French. Her friend Bree is having a butterfly birthday. The cake, the invitations, the costumes all carry out the butterfly theme. Nancy is excited to dress as an iridescent azure butterfly. But the best laid plans of a little girl sometimes go awry. When Nancy's mother uses fancy words to inform her about the fiftieth anniversary party of her grandparents, fancy words do not make Nancy feel any better. Mad is not a strong enough word—she scowls, she sulks, she storms around the house. What can her parents do to help her accept the inevitable? How can Nancy forget to be furious long enough to have fun? Jane O'Connor is an editor at a publishing house. She continues to offer a thoughtful and important message. Robin Glasser's full page art captures the attention with gorgeous flowers, dressed-up dogs, twirling children and of course, exquisite butterflies. Reviewer: JoAn Watson Martin

My daughter loves all the Fancy Nancy books. They never disappoint my budding diva. I enjoy reading them to her. We hope there will be more to come

These books are so much fun for your little Divas. I love that it introduces my daughter to 'fancy' words and encourages her to expand her vocabulary even more. We started with 'Fancy Nancy' a week ago and my 4 year old already has it memorized. We just bought everything else 'Nancy' tonight. The books are wonderful, which is a fancy word for great. They encourage individuality, self expression, imagination and vocabulary expansion. And they are just fun to read!

Sweetly drawn characters with child friendly prose. Cute story with a little lesson about conversational expressions. Its a fun read aloud that I use to introduce idioms and colloquialisms. Students love to hear this book and it is always on the check out 'wait list'.

My four year old daughter loves this series about a little girl who loves being fancy. As you read the story she uses words like azure, extraordinary, iridescent, etc. and then says which is fancy for.... so it's a great way to add to her vocabulary.

A little girl who puts her all into being cutesy is the star in this beautifully illustrated book. How does she learn to handle disappointment? Aah! There is a story, too.
