Synopsis: Fancy Nancy is ready for the spotlight.
Fancy Nancy and her best friend, Bree, couldn't be more excited about their upcoming dance show. After all, it's all about mermaids--and who knows how to be a fancy, glamorous mermaid better than Fancy Nancy herself? But when another ballerina wins the coveted role of the mermaid, Nancy is stuck playing a dreary, dull tree. Can Nancy bring fancy flair to her role, even though it isn't the one she wanted? And when disaster strikes right before the big ballet, who will step in to steal the spotlight?
Review: 5 Stars - Fancy Nancy is such a fun book for younger girls. And the illustrations are bright, colorful and perfectly fancy for Nancy.
I think I loved the illustrations the most out of the book. I know that my niece has loved Nancy for awhile, so it’s been fun to spend time with her reading this book. She’s a fan of all things girly, mermaids and dancing so I was more than excited that I had a chance to sit and share the time with her in reading Nancy’s new story.
There’s a great lesson to be learned when Nancy doesn’t get the part that she wants in her Ballet classes play. That she should still be happy and excited to be part of it and happy for her friend who gets the part that Nancy wants more than anything. It’s a cute story, great illustrations and another fun chance to sit and spend time with my niece. Recommend to younger girls who love to play dress up or love to use their imaginations.
