Editorial Reviews

From Barnes & Noble

For little girls, every wedding is the wedding of the century. Just the thought of being part of nuptials puts Fancy Nancy in a joyous tizzy. For her, helping the bride and attending the post-wedding formal reception are dreams come true and she can't wait to participate in an event that she will never, ever, ever forget. A perfect addition to a picture perfect series.

Kirkus Reviews
2014-04-30
Given the obvious opportunities, it's remarkable that it took O'Connor and Glasser eight years to place their pulchritudinous picture-book phenom into a wedding-themed tale—but the wait was worth it.The setup is simple: Nancy's uncle is getting married, and the whole family is invited. The fact that the wedding is in two weeks might give readers a clue that it's not exactly a formal affair, but Nancy immediately assumes that: a) it will be very fancy; and b) she'll be the flower girl. A tackle box packed into the car along with the luggage provides a second clue to the true nature of the event. Nonetheless, the author and illustrator treat readers to a vision of opulence and elegance as the family arrives at a grand hotel and celebrates in style. Turns out that's just a dream, though, and the ultimate destination is actually a lakeside cabin. Though Uncle Cal and his fiancee, Dawn, have their own ideas about how to get hitched, Dawn is savvy enough to accept a loan from Nancy that adds a certain over-the-top element to her ensemble and satisfies Nancy's ever present urge to make the world more beautiful. Appealing, expressive illustrations complement the text's cheerful tone and help to keep the sweet story from becoming saccharine.Frothy and fun, Nancy's latest adventure feels as fresh as her first appearance. (Picture book. 4-8)
