Perfect for kids ages 4 to 8, this latest installment in the Fancy Nancy storybook line continues the little girl's charming and oh-so-posh adventures.

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.

We just love the Fancy Nancy series. This is a go to lesson for young ones who claim to not be tired enough for bed. As soon as I mention that staying up late leads to an exhausting day, the fight ends. Thanks Fancy Nancy for being a great example!

Cute story.

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.

My seven-year-old granddaughter simply can't get enough of Fancy Nancy and her plain parents. She has loved every book in the series. This time Nancy stays up past her bedtime to look at a scrapbook with a flashlight under the covers and finds that isn't such a good idea when she is fatigued (a fancy name for tired) the next day. This came after several nights at Grandma and Papa's when my granddaughter stayed up a little too late so she could really understand. I was pleased when she took the book today and read it to me! There were only a few words she needed help on and one was French so I thought that was very good. Many times she will read about half the book and then ask me to read the rest to her. This time she loved the story so much she just wanted to keep on reading herself. I know that a time will come when she outgrows Fancy Nancy but I hope it's not any time soon. I enjoy the stories and the detailed pictures as much as she does!

The Fancy Nancy books have great stories, lessons, and "fancy" vocabulary my daughter can't get enough of.

This entire series is great. Stories are a great length and the artwork compliments the entire piece.
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.

My daughter loves Fancy Nancy and this one is not exception. I love how in the book they explain the consequences of Fancy Late Late night. Not only does she feel tired at school the next day but she falls asleep before Little sister does.

If your little girl likes Fancy Nancy this is a good addition to the collection. I bought it for our SMART reading program so lots of little girls are getting a chance to read it, which is a good thing.
