Reviews & Summaries
O'Connor perfectly captures the voice of her enthusiastically fabulous protagonist, and readers will find themselves learning the tricks to living fancy (e.g. wearing lacy socks, always choosing sprinkles) along with Nancy's family.
The real joy of this book, though, are Glasser's amazingly detailed watercolor illustrations. The vivacity of Nancy leaps off the page thanks to her expressive facial expressions, multitude of accessories and baubles, and bright color palette.
Though the femininity of Nancy will likely turn off male readers, little girls will eat the story up and the multitude of details in the illustrations will help to keep parents interested through multiple reads as well.
