If you've never been introduced to Fancy Nancy, you don't know what you're missing! Nancy, besides being fancy, loves glitzy clothing, the outstanding Mrs. DeVine, her understated (see below) family, and anything and everything French!
Fancy Nancy is a xenophile (a person who loves foreign people and foreign things). She wishes she had a middle name, so that her monogram (your initials on something to show it's yours) would have three letters. She wishes she could go on an excursion (a special trip) to Paris, which she yearns for (wants really badly).
All in all, although her mother dresses in an understated (plain) wardrobe (collection of clothes), she knows that not everyone can be a Queen (a woman who rules over a kingdom).
What she does know, though, is that by reading this book, your vocabulary (all the words you know), will be greatly improved!
FANCY NANCY'S FAVORITE FANCY WORDS is a wonderful addition to the series, and the illustrations by Robin Preiss Glasser are, as always, just perfect for the story. This one is a keeper, especially for young girls who wear tiaras (a crown for a princess) and understand all about acessories (fancy extra stuff).
