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.)

    Nancy does it again!

    Another funny and heartwarming story of the exploits of this wonderful character, Nancy. Jane O'Conner has pulled out all the stops to create another great story with so much Christmas heart and joy. Of course something goes wrong for our dramatic heroine and it's just right how things are resolved. The pictures pull the reader in again and again, each time my granddaughter points out some other fun decorative detail.

    Not as good as the other Fancy Nancys

    I love the Fancy Nancy books as a parent. The illustrations are beautiful and stories sweet and touching. The latest book for christmas just isn't as good. It isn't bad but not as good. My kids like it so I recommend buying it if your kids are Nancy fans but overall I was disappointed.

    Fancy Nancy with a Holiday Theme

    I think this book was typical of the books in the Fancy Nancy series. Well illustrated and entertaining to read. The just-turned-six-year-old who I bought it for started with a "picture walk through" and then I read the story to her. Even her twin brother was engaged for the tale. If you know someone who likes Fancy Nancy, this is a good one to add to the collection.

    Fun Read

    My granddaughter loves to listen to this one - it also introduces her to some more flamboyant words and tells her what they mean.

    Fancy Nancy Splendiferous Christmas

    This is a typical Fancy Nancy story with plenty of information, vocabulary explanation and morals all rolled into one interesting and entertaining story. It is a very good read prior to and at Christmas time. It includes Nancy's exuberance and the influence of the various generations as well as the wisdom and experiences they share with one another and the positive outcome that each of the Fancy Nancy stories includes. I have purchased several of the various Fancy Nancy books as gifts and am always apprecitive of the vocabulary, gentle adult guidance and the thoughtfully included morals.

    Delightful!

    My two year daughter has been in love with Fancy Nancy for months. I have to admit, my husband and I love her too. Splendiferous Christmas definitely upheld the Fancy Nancy reputation. It's a wonderful story with excellent artwork.

    Splendiferous

    Magnificent (fancy word for really good)use of words. Relevance to today's children is exceptional (fancy word for really really good). In our family, grandparents and grandchildren alike look forward to each new Nancy adventure.

    Christmas with Fancy Nancy? What Could Be Better?

    Fancy Nancy is one of our family's favorite characters. Reading about her at the Christmas season is funny and joyous. She's a hoot!
