I recently discovered the Fancy Nancy books when I was out shopping for something special for my god-daughter, LOLA. They are totally adorable, Nancy’s wild red hair instantly won me over, so I may be a little biased. There are now more than 36 books in the Fancy Nancy series, selling over 16 million copies, this first book spent nearly 100 weeks on the New York Times Best Seller list. Fancy Nancy has been on Publishers Weekly’s bestseller list for picture books, was a Children’s Book-of-the-Month Club selection and a Junior Library Guild Selection. It also won a “Borders 2006 Original Voices” award and has been translated into 17 languages, including Hungarian and Hebrew. Books in the series have now spent more than 250 weeks on the New York Times Best Seller list. This is a must have item for the little girls in your life.
“Fancy Nancy is a wild, young girl with a larger than life personality, who adores all things fancy. She always dresses extravagantly, wearing boas, tutus, ruby slippers, fairy wings, and fuzzy slippers. Nancy loves using big fancy words such as “iridescent”, “ecstatic”, and “extraordinary” and anything in French. She has redecorated her bedroom with everyday items, such as feather boas, Christmas lights, paper flowers, and hats. Her favorite doll is named Marabelle Lavinia Chandelier.”
