Overview

Kids who grew up with Jane O'Connor's Fancy Nancy picture books can spend some quality time with their BFF because Nancy Clancy is now starring in her own chapter books!

Fancy Nancy: Nancy Clancy, Super Sleuth is the first in a series of delightful middle-grade mysteries. Sassy Fancy Nancy is now a detective. Told in the third-person narrative, when one of Nancy's classmate's most special possessions disappears from school, it's up to her to save the day. With the help of her friend Bree, she follows the clues to an unexpected source.

Fans of Nancy Drew's Clue Crew will be happy to see a new Nancy join the ranks of super sleuths.

Robin Preiss Glasser illustrates Nancy's story with liveliness, wit, and fanciness.

Editorial Reviews

Following in the footsteps of her beloved Nancy Drew, Fancy Nancy attires herself in a style-setting pink trench coat and sunglasses and sets off with her partner in crime-fighting Bree to solve a batch of unsolved mysteries. Nancy Clancy, Super Sleuth contains a fetching mix of whimsy, Fancy Nancy earnestness, and pleasing brain-teasing puzzles. A failsafe chapter book choice for clue-hunting girls and boys alike.

This book was perfect for my daughter... She is 6 and loved Fancy Nancy to be read to her! The Easter Bunny was so happy to find this book at Barnes and Noble and place it in her Easter basket! My daughter is 6yrs old and thought the story was terrific! I can't wait for Nancy's next case!

This is wonderful! My 5 year old was thrilled that Fancy Nancy went on in chapter books, now that she's graduating from the "I Can Read" series of books, and I'm thrilled that the books are mysteries, which my daughter and I share a love of. I hope to transition from these to Nancy Drew in time, and I dearly hope this series continues.

Wow, was I so excited to see a chapter book about Fancy Nancy! My 5.5 year old has loved Fancy Nancy for years - now that she can read the Level 1 & Level 2 type books on her own, I'd missed reading about Nancy. A chapter book was a great progression for my daughter and I. We couldn't put it down and were happy to see "book 1" in the upper corner of the cover - eagerly awaiting more!

My 8 year old daughter absolutely LOVED this book. She was hoping to find it was a series and sad to learn it was not. Hopefully another will come soon.

My daughter was the biggest fan of the Fancy Nancy series and has even met the author, Jane O'Connor and the illustrator, Robin Preiss Glasser. You can imagine our excitement to find that there is now a chapter series starring our favorite Posh gal!! We bought the book and she has already read it 3 times. I certainly hope that we do not have a long wait for following books in this series!

This book is wonderful. It might be above my age limit but, once I read the first chapter, my eyes were glued to the page. The word choices were magnificate and were very strong. I am going to use these words in my vocabulary. This book also made me think twice. I WANT TO BECOME A DETECTIVE? I strongly hope you enjoy the book.
