The plot is about Nancy's neighbor Ms. DeVine, who used to live in Hollywood and see lots of movie stars. Ms. DeVine lets Nancy borrow her scrapbook filled with celebrity photographs, some of them autographed. The starstruck Nancy spends the rest of the day impersonating a movie star, then stays up late under the covers looking at the scrapbook: "I stay up very late. It is almost ten o'clock when I put away the scrapbook and turn off my flashlight! I bet even celebrities don't stay up this late!" Needless to say, Nancy is very tired--exhausted!--and regrets her late night.
Aside from the gentle message, it's the little details will make you a Fancy Nancy fan. The illustrations, pen and ink over vibrant watercolor, are packed with fun and realistic details. Ms. DeVine's tiny dog Jewel is enamored of an autographed (with a pawprint) photo of Rin Tin Tin. Nancy gives an autograph to her own dog. Nancy's doll is dressed exactly like Nancy.
Like all the books in this series, throughout are simple words with their corresponding "fancy" equivalents: veranda for porch, celebrities for movie stars, fascinating for interesting.

Best of all, the kids actually learn. My 5 year old daughter is always using some of the "fancy" vocabulary
words in her regular speech and that shows me that she really listens and pays attention and absorbs it.
Does it teach kids how to stay up late (and hide it from parents) or that staying up has negative consequences?
Only time will tell.
