Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Dianne Ochiltree
The "Fancy Nancy" popular picture book franchise, created by author Jane O'Connor and artist Robin Preiss Glasser, proves it can grow up right along with its fans in this entertaining Level 1 "I Can Read" title, aimed at the beginning reader. When Nancy's teacher, Ms. Glass, announces to the class that the new student is from Paris, Nancy cannot believe her good fortune—Paris, France, is the most dazzling, dizzying, frankly FANCY place in the world. She sets out to make Robert her new best ami. She and Robert find they enjoy many fun times together, but Nancy continues to be puzzled by his interest in horses and cowboys…until she discovers that her uncharacteristic tardy arrival to the classroom on Robert's first day in school meant she missed hearing all of the key information. Suffice it to say, there is more than ONE Paris on the globe. This charming story of friendship is nicely illustrated, not by Ms. Glasser, but by Ted Enik, who ably creates full-color artwork in the frilly "Fancy Nancy" spirit throughout the book's interior pages. Cover art, however, was contributed by Robin Preiss Glasser. This early reader is guaranteed to fly off the library or classroom shelves! Reviewer: Dianne Ochiltree
