5.0 out of 5 stars another lovely story 4 Feb 2013
By Dave G
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Fancy Nancy is one of our favourites. This story is particularly cute, my daughter is 6, we have been reading these books together for at least 2 years and now she likes to read them alone. My son also likes them - he is 8!

1.0 out of 5 stars Just a Cheap Knock-Off 14 Nov 2010
By Captain Latte - Published on Amazon.com
As another reviewer mentioned, this book is neither written by the original author (Jane O'Connor) nor illustrated by the original artist (Robin Preiss Glasser). It is nothing more than a cheap knock-off. Some of the other books like Splendid Cupcakes are at least written by Jane O'Connor. Amazon really needs to note which ones have the original author and artist otherwise it is false advertising.

And you can tell that the originality in both writing and art is missing in this one. In fact, this is the first Fancy Nancy book I have read to my daughter where she didn't even want to have me read it again right after the first time I read it to her. The art work is boring and lacks the lavishness of original Fancy Nancys. Certainly, the colors are more muted and dull, but that's because of the cheapness of the book. The text is boring too.

I highly recommend avoiding these cheap knock-offs where the publisher is just trying to make a quick buck off of the franchise name and just sticking with the original ones!!!

5.0 out of 5 stars Fancy Nancy and the Sensational Babysitter 19 May 2010
By Linda Lyon - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Excellent book. I am a retired Elementary Reading Teacher and have purchased the entire Fancy Nancy series for my three grandaughters. They absolutely love the books and character. They have the doll and dress-up clothes to match and we have attended Fancy Nancy Luncheons, which they find very special. I used these books in school to increase vocabulary skills and it is amazing to listen to the vast vocabulary of my three grandaughters, they are ages 3, 6, and 8. Hats off to Jane O'Conner for writing another wonderful book!

4.0 out of 5 stars Review by worldoflil.com 19 May 2010
By R. Colucci - Published on Amazon.com
My mother got these books for my step-daughter and at first I wanted to chuck them - another fluffy book about girls playing dressup... but they are much more than that. First off, my step-daughter loves it - and anything that gets her reading, and reading... and reading... is a great thing. The books are fun and are more than the generic writing found in what one would think here. O'Connor created the Nina, Nina the Ballerina (I think that is the correct title) and she continues to turn out great books for little girls. Even ones I can be comfortable reading at bedtime.

2.0 out of 5 stars Cashing in on Fancy Nancy 11 Nov 2010
By Andrena - Published on Amazon.com
While your child will probably not notice the difference, this is not written by Jane O'Conner nor illustrated by Robin Preiss Glasser (except the cover) and isn't nearly so lyrical and whimsical as the originals. The publishers have obviously figured out they've got something worth cashing in on here, which is a wonderful testimony to the "real" Fancy Nancy books. This, however, is just a cheap knockoff. If you've never read a Fancy Nancy book, don't start with this one.

5.0 out of 5 stars Nice Fancy Nancy book for girls with big brothers too 16 Sep 2010
By Kristin Majda - Published on Amazon.com
My daughters and I really enjoy the Fancy Nancy series. The stories are all very good; though some of the thematic books are a bit less engaging for younger children (I'm talking about the ones that are illustrated more like a collage and have poetry or recipes sprinkled throughout). The artwork is delicious and makes me laugh out loud at times, especially that done by the series' original artist Robin Preiss Glasser (if this is important to you, look for the books where she is listed as the artist rather than the ones that say "pictures based on the art of Robin Preiss Glasser"). Even though this edition is not written by the original author (Jane O'Conner) or illustrated by Glasser, I particularly liked it because it discusses Nancy's relationship with her new babysitter who, to her initial horror, turns out to be a teenage boy. As you can imagine, despite this hang up, they hit it off great. I chose it because the interplay between Nancy and her babysitter reminds me of that which occurs between my four year old daughter and my teenage son. As Nancy gains appreciation for her new babysitter, so too am I able to use the story to help my daughter gain appreciation for her big brother. This book is superb, as Nancy would say.
