Overview

What could be fancier than Christmas?

Presents with elegant wrapping paper, festive decorations, Christmas cookies with sprinkles—and who could forget the tree? After all, there is no such thing as too much tinsel. Ooh la la! This year, Nancy is especially excited about decorating the Christmas tree. She bought a brand-new sparkly tree topper with her own money and has been waiting for Christmas to come. But when things don't turn out the way Nancy planned, will Christmas still be splendiferous?

In this merriest of stories from bestselling duo Jane O'Connor and Robin Preiss Glasser, Nancy proves once again that a little fancying up can go a long, festive way!

Editorial Reviews

Pamela Paul
There may be no occasion more suited to Fancy Nancy's taste and temperament than Christmas…From its silver foil sparkle-encrusted cover to the exuberantly rococo illustration within, courtesy of Robin Preiss Glasser, this latest installment, no matter how basic the gift wrap, will elicit squeals from young female recipients.
—The New York Times
Publishers Weekly
The world has never seemed fancier to Nancy than at Christmas: there's abundant snow, the house is decked out in lights and, on Christmas Eve, Nancy has a special angel tree topper to hang. The trouble is, Christmas Eve comes with a lot of waiting (Nancy keeps busy decorating cookies, wrapping presents and caroling while awaiting family members' arrival). Nancy's ebullience results in a tearful mishap, but the glamorous heroine's vivacious personality, captured once again in Glasser's cheerfully detailed illustrations and a sprinkling of fancy vocabulary, proves evergreen. Ages 4–7. (Nov.)
