My daughter loved being able to design a new Halloween costume for Nancy at the end of the book. The only down side was that you can only decorate Nancy once. I was creative though, and copied the last page so that my daughter was able to create 4 different costumes for Nancy. Then I taped the extra pages into the book. This way the book now has 4 different endings.

My daughter's birthday is around Halloween (she got the book a little early!), so I always try to get a couple of new Halloween books for her. Not having read any Fancy Nancy books before, I ordered this and she loves it! She wants to read it over and over again- a good sign- and this book prompted us to get additional Fancy Nancy books.

Fancy Nancy: Halloween.... or Bust is the perfect October read for your little Fancy Girl. Nancy shows you that Halloween is ALL about dressing up. Nancy knows how to make everything even more fancy, with special touches, and special FANCY words that give the ordinary a new meaning. Here are just a few of the new words Fancy Nancy introduces the young readers to:

* Unique - one of a kind
* bonbons -fancy candy
* disastrous - very bad

Nancy's Halloween Party included games such as, pin the tail on the monster, but before the party is over Nancy experiences something "disastrous" herself -- it has to do with her costume. Fortunately, the readers lucky enough to read this book, can help Nancy make a new costume with the lovely stickers that come with this book.

I've read and reviewed several Fancy Nancy books and have enjoyed them all, and this one is no exception. I'm not quite sure, but for some reason, this Halloween story seemed to have fewer "fancy" words, than the other books, but I could be wrong. A fun read for a fun Holiday! Little Girls will love it.

This is a fun little book with stickers for Halloween, especially for Fancy Nancy fans. But it's pretty thin and flimsy.

Fancy Nancy: Halloween...or Bust!
Love Halloween and when I saw Fancy Nancy had a Halloween book I just had to have it. This book is one of the first reader series, which as far as I can tell it means that it soft backed and the words are less fancy. It as stickers to dress Fancy Nancy. I love the art work that all the Fancy Nancy books have although I have a preference for the hard bound books. This is a cute little story of how Fancy Nancy decides on a costume and then it does not really work out the way she's planned. Don't want to ruin the ending for anyone who wants to get this. I like reading children's books and if you have your own little Fancy Nancy I recommend getting this for her as a less sugary Halloween treat.

And no one loves Halloween like my daughter. She loves dressing up and of course candy!

We really love the Fancy Nancy books and this one was extra special because it comes with 30 "fabulous" stickers.

In this book Fancy Nancy is dressing up as grapes for a Halloween Party. She even smells "grape-y" (grape bubble bath) but when the balloons on her costume pop she has a "disastrous" moment which only the readers can fix by using the stickers included to create a new costume for her.

Unfortunately, Goddess has zero patience and decided to use the stickers on a cute drawing for her Abuela. It was only when I got to the end of the book the other day that she realized why they had been included. She was upset until I told her to create an outfit using markers and colored pencils.

Another great Fancy Nancy read! In Halloween or Bust Nancy decides to wear a unique costume using fuchsia (her fave color) balloons to be a bunch of grapes! Can you just imagine the outcome? Hilarious & adorable story of the mishaps of Nancy's costume with the added treat that you get to save the day & use bonus stickers (they are included) to give Nancy a Fabulously Fancy Costume! My girls (4 & 2.5 yrs) had lots of fun creating Nancy's brand new costume & making sure it was fancy enough!
