Horn Book Review

Fancy Nancy has to be a good sport after learning she can't go to her friend Bree's incredibly fancy butterfly-themed birthday bash because she has to attend her grandparents' fiftieth anniversary party. Refreshingly, Nancy's pursuit of fanciness isn't the story's focus this time. Don't worry: there's still plenty of "fancy" talk and overembellished art to appease Nancy's acolytes.
