From the dazzling bestselling duo Jane O’Connor and Robin Preiss Glasser comes a fancy, frilly ballet story with a lot of heart. Young ballerinas and Fancy Nancy fans will shout encore!

Fancy Nancy is ready for the spotlight! Fancy Nancy and her best friend, Bree, couldn't be more excited about their upcoming dance show. After all, it's all about mermaids, and who knows how to be a fancy, glamorous mermaid better than Fancy Nancy herself?

But when another ballerina wins the coveted role of the mermaid, Nancy is stuck playing a dreary, dull tree. Can Nancy bring fancy flair to her role, even though it isn't the one she wanted? And when disaster strikes right before the big ballet, who will step into the spotlight?

Perfect for fans of the Eloise and Olivia books.

Ooh la la! Fancy Nancy is starring in her own fabulous TV show on Disney Junior. READ THE BOOKS THAT STARTED IT ALL!

My 6 year daughter loves Fancy Nancy and this book was a hit! It's wonderful to have the read to me feature. She utilized it on a long trip in the car recently when neither her father or I could read to her. I wish the read to me ebooks were not so expensive. I would buy many more if they were a bit cheaper.

**Originally posted on Libby Blog** Full of imagination and glamour! When Madame Lucille announces that they will be performing a ballet called Deep-sea Dances, Fancy Nancy and Bree can't wait to be the lead mermaids! Unfortunately, they are assigned to be a tree and an oyster. After a lovely tea party where they talk about how wonderful each will be in their parts, Fancy Nancy is disappointed once again when the star mermaid gets injured and Bree is selected to take her place instead of her. As Nancy struggles with jealously and trying to overcome it, we are treated to gorgeous and glamorous outfit after outfit as usual! My 5-year-old's thoughts: I loved Fancy Nancy and her friend when they played mermaid and her little sister poured water on the top of the lagoon. I liked their little playhouse and loved the Fancy Nancy dresses. And I liked her friend too. It was awesome when she bowed down to the dance teacher and I loved the little peace sign on the other girl's dress. I like the girl with the braids in and the purple suit with a bow in her hair. I loved when they played tea party with the French words. I love it when she swoops and swirls everywhere. I didn't like when the girl sprained her ankle. I also didn't like it when Fancy Nancy's friend got to be the mermaid and not Fancy Nancy. That was kind of mean. I didn't like it when she shoved her costume in behind the closet! I loved the show! And I liked when they hugged at the end. That's all. My thoughts: This was such a delightful story with Fancy Nancy which not only includes all that you would expect from Nancy but also a great life lesson too! Jealously is such a tough issue for young children and even adults to deal with. After some sound advice from her mother, Fancy Nancy pulls it off gracefully and admiringly. Plus, she does it in true Fancy Nancy style! Wait until you see her on stage in her Weeping Willow costume! WOW!

Great story for little girls and how to be happy for others even though you are sad for yourself!

Another solid installment in the Fancy Nancy series. O'Connor has written a charming (if not entirely new and original) story, but as I always find, Robin Glasser's art is the standout. I love her details, so important in a project like Nancy. And I noticed, perhaps for the first time because she spent so much time in a leotard, that Nancy has a bit of a tummy! So do some of the other girls. Good for Ms. Glasser for not making every character stick thin and being more realistic about shapes and sizes.

Fancy Nancy is beautifully illustrated and a fun voice to listen too.
