Recently, Ms. O'Connor has produced two Fancy Nancy books for the "I Can Read!" series. I was thrilled to see this because of have a young daughter named Nancy who is on the verge of learning to read. These books will be great for her.
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.
