Nancy is as cute as ever, with her curlicue ringlets and girly clothes. Nancy's teacher Ms. Glass (a model for teachers everywhere!) is enthusiastic and funky with a purple streak in her hair.
I'm all for more science for kids. The "fancy words" in this beginning reader book include brilliant, constellation, meteor, orbit and planetarium. Not bad!
My only quibble is with the illustrations inside the book. Instead of being by Robin Preiss Glasser, like the cover, they are done by someone else, Ted Enik. Granted, they are "pictures based on the art of Robin Preiss Glasser," but overall they are sketchier and not as charming.
Some Fancy Nancy books that exclusively use Robin's art are Fancy Nancy , Fancy Nancy: Bonjour, Butterfly (Fancy Nancy) , Fancy Nancy's Favorite Fancy Words and Fancy Nancy and the Posh Puppy .
Unlike other Fancy Nancy titles, the cover does not have glittery sparkles on the artwork and letters.
