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

    4 yr old likes it

    I bought this book/CD for my 4 year old. She likes Fancy Nancy and enjoys "reading" along with the narration on the CD. Cute story.

    She Loves It!

    I got this book to help my daughter on her path to reading success. Because I have such a love for reading I want to share this experience with her. She love this book. Fancy Nancy at the Museum makes her love to read. She enjoys the easiness of the book. the words and story is great for her being a beginner reader. I will have her read more in this series of books.

    Fancy Nancy is always a hit

    My almost five-year old daughter enjoys the Fancy Nancy series. Some of the words are a bit difficult for her age, but the book is a good tool for advancing her vocabulary. She is in a French language program, so I like the French themes and words interspersed throughout the series. I read this particular book to my daughter before our visit to a museum, and I thought it made for nice discussion of what she could expect to see.

    Gross and inappropriate

    This book has some wonderful new words and the series is excellent BUT the story is gross and inappropriate. A little girl gets sick on a field trip to the museum. Although these things happen, it is inappropriate for a book. The "realism" has gone too far and ruined the rest of a rather cute book. The author could have had other options... and chose the worst one. Other books in the series are excellent, but now I need to pre-read them before giving to my 6-year-old granddaughters. Poor judgment on the part of author, editor and artist. Come-on!!
