Good Morning! This is the first in a series of book reviews on the book series Fancy Nancy.
These are not paid reviews and are from a very young person’s perspective.
This series is written by Jane O’Connor. Published in 2013.
There is also a TV cartoon series.
*a little about this reviewer: Eleanor is currently 6 months old. I know what you are thinking, but she has a definite opinion about things already.
As for Fancy Nancy, nothing grabs attention like Fancy Nancy. This series is like that of Dora but with the French language mixed in.
Eleanor loves the illustrations, they are colorful and bold. Nancy’s catch phrase is “ooh la la” which always gets a big gummy smile.
The unique thing about these books is how she explains a “fancy” word. For instance, in this story “indelible” is explained like this “She used indelible marker. Indelible means permanent, and permanent means it won’t ever come off. Never, ever.”
So this story starts out with Nancy’s little sister giving her favorite dolly a tattoo on her tummy. Eleanor is frowning at such a thing.
Nancy’s momma introduces the idea of going to a doll gala to cheer her up. Eleanor is drooling at the idea and wonders how fancy is Nancy and mirabelle (that’s the dolls name) are going to dress up?
While at the gala mirabelle gets mistaken for someone else’s doll, Oh the Horror Eleanor exclaims!
The only way Mirabelle is identified is by her tummy tattoo! Could this be a positive to such a harrowing beginning of this story? Eleanor exclaims!!!
In the end Nancy forgives her sister and Eleanor gives this book a big slobbery kiss❣💋
We rate this book 5 out of 5 kissy lips❣
