Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Meagan Albright
This book is sure to boost the vocabulary of the reader, not only because the author uses "big words" that are carefully explained, but also because the book is so entertaining that children are sure to read it avidly and repeatedly. Fancy Nancy is a cute and compelling character who faces the kinds of troubles that young readers can identify with: anticipating a fun field trip, overeating and stomachaches, and finding their own identity through new experiences. Nancy is a fun and unique character, yet she still manages to personify the life of every child so that readers will find themselves in her books. Teachers, parents and caregivers will also like the "Fancy Nancy" books in part due to the Fancy Nancy's section of "Fancy Words," which contains definitions for words such as beret, lavender, observant, portrait, and spectacular. Fancy Nancy stars in a series of books, so readers who love this title can easily find more great books to read. Reviewer: Meagan Albright
School Library Journal

K-Gr 2- While these new readers are adequate, they do not offer the high energy that bounces off every page in the original Fancy Nancy (HarperCollins, 2006). Of the two titles, Museum has the stronger text. Here, Nancy's teacher saves the day when the child overeats and gets sick on a class field trip. The story in Boy from Paris is slight, and the logic is problematic. Nancy, who loves anything French, assumes that a new classmate is from France until she later learns that he moved from Paris, TX. The precocious heroine comments that the boy "already speaks English," but wouldn't she notice that he doesn't have a French accent? The interior illustrations, modeled on the art of Robin Preiss Glasser (who drew the cover) but rendered by Enik, lack the spark and momentum that characterize Glasser's work. Additionally, the reading level printed on the covers (Level 1) does not seem appropriate. With new vocabulary such as "perplexed" and "gorgeous," and with six to eight sentences on some pages, these books seem to be Level 2. Strengths include a large font size, ample white space, and an appealing main character. Large libraries with strong early-reader sections may want to order the museum title.-Barbara Katz, Parish Episcopal School, Dallas, TX
