Review

Fancy Nancy cannot be consoled, as her best friend Bree has gone away on vacation to the fabulous New York City. What will she do all week? With a splash of color and dash of ‘fancy’ vocabulary, she is inspired to become an artist for the week, creating artwork in the styles of Degas, Monet, Matisse and Pollock. In the end, Nancy has a fantastic week and has her very own art exhibit in the backyard with all the pizzazz of a true ‘artiste.’ This book is a wonderful way to introduce younger readers to new vocabulary, as well as teach them a lesson in art history. Also, I could see this being used in the classroom for a week’s worth of art projects. Fancy Nancy is obviously appealing to young girls and her companion Lionel is relatable to the young boy. Glasser’s illustrations are charmingly busy and colorful. Overall this book is thoroughly entertaining and a must-have for any bookshelf. Highly Recommended.
