Nancy is as charming as ever, with her girly-girl clothes and curlicue hair. She uses big words, and then says that the word is a fancy version of something simpler: "I am very perplexed. That's a fancy word for mixed up." At the end of the book is a list of all the "fancy words" used in the story, with their definitions.
Like the other Fancy Nancy titles, the cover has glittery sparkles on the artwork and letters.
I have to say, however, that, of the two, I like this one better. Fancy Nancy and the Boy from Paris is simply a great book. As always, the art is great. Plus, it has an excellent story with a great twist that still manages to fit the Fancy Nancy character perfectly. (Spoiler alert!) In this case, a new boy from Paris arrives to join Nancy's class. Nancy is thrilled because she loves all things French but it turns out that the boy is actually from Paris, Texas.
This book may have been written for a reading series but it is my favorite Fancy Nancy story since the first one. Any Fancy Nancy fan should have it, but so should anyone who simply likes a good children's story.
