Adorable. That's a fancy word for cute
Reviewed in the United States on February 7, 2008
A little misunderstanding fuels the plot in this cute "I Can Read" book, rated for beginning readers ages 4 through 8. Fancy Nancy makes friends with the new boy in her class, who comes all the way from Paris. Nancy, who loves everything French, keeps trying to help Robert fit in to a new country. She's puzzled when Robert seems more interested in books about cowboys.
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.
