PreS-Gr 2-Another delicious "Fancy Nancy" book. This time the little glamour girl has a problem. Her friend Bree is having an extra-special butterfly birthday party on the same day that Nancy's grandparents are celebrating their 50th wedding anniversary. The family party wins out and Nancy is "furious" ("Mad is way too plain for how I feel"). But things turn out unexpectedly well: she discovers that motels are fun, and that grandparents have elegant and extraordinary parties and an exciting surprise up their sleeves. Glasser's illustrations and O'Connor's text have created the quintessential girly girl in Nancy. The red-haired heroine is so full of joie de vivre (as she would say) as she dances through the book in her finery-bows, ribbons, butterflies, beads, flowers, and all-that little girls everywhere will happily enjoy this adventure.-Judith Constantinides, formerly at East Baton Rouge Parish Main Library, LA Copyright 2008 Reed Business Information.
