*NOW A HIT TV SERIES ON DISNEY JUNIOR*
The bestselling picture book that launched the beloved Fancy Nancy series by the dazzling duo Jane O’Connor and Robin Preiss Glasser!
Meet Nancy, who believes that more is ALWAYS better when it comes to being fancy. She loves to wear fancy clothes, play with fancy toys, and most of all, use fancy words! But everyone in her family is just the opposite. From the top of her tiara down to her sparkly studded shoes, Nancy is determined to teach her family a thing or two about being fancy.
How Nancy transforms her parents and little sister for one enchanted evening makes for a story that is funny and warm—with or without the frills. This heartwarming story emphasizes the importance of family and the power of self-expression.
Perfect for fans of the Eloise and Olivia books.

With exuberance, lan and lots of heart, O'Connor (the Nina, Nina Ballerina books) and Glasser (A Is for Abigail) prove that the bosom of the family has ample room for even the most outr individualist. Channeling the spirits of Grace Kelly and Audrey Hepburn whose pictures adorn her extravagantly decorated room Nancy tries to make the world a more flamboyant place, starting with her decidedly down-to-earth family ("They never even ask for sprinkles," she notes as they exit an ice cream parlor). She offers her parents and little sister a free tutorial in all things fancy (yellow is plain, gold is fancy), which they gamely attend, and they even agree to go to a restaurant wearing Nancy-orchestrated frou-frou (Mom's ensemble includes Christmas ornament earrings and a feather boa). But when Nancy commits a faux pas of major proportions (she trips with a tray full of ice cream) she comes to realize that her family's love for her is as bottomless as her collection of hair accessories. O'Connor captures Nancy's dramatic precociousness without making her sound like a snoot ("My favorite color is fuchsia. That's a fancy way of saying purple"); she comes across as a genuinely creative spirit rather than an imperious fashionista. Glasser's pictures brim with comic detail and sparkle like a bauble from Tiffany. Like O'Connor, she empathizes with Nancy's over-the-top sensibility, yet gently grounds the heroine in the steady (if bemused) embrace of her family. Ages 4-7.
