Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

Kindergarten-Grade 2—Nancy is back, and here she encourages her audience to use some "fancy" words. Arranged alphabetically with usually one entry per letter, the terms are introduced. For example, "Fiasco—a big flop, a disaster. I dropped all the parfaits. What a fiasco!" Instead of dogs, Nancy uses "canine" and substitutes "excursion" for trip. Other fun-filled suggestions include "boa," "tiara," and "wardrobe." The energetic, colorful illustrations entice readers to add sparkle to their conversations and writings.—Linda Staskus, Parma Regional Library, OH

From Booklist

Fancy Nancy’s many fans will want this alphabetically organized list of fancy words. Designed to expand vocabulary, the book places one new word and its definition on a page, then offers a sentence to show its use in context. For instance, accessories is defined as “fancy extra stuff.” The sentence, which explains that Nancy has more fancy stuff than anybody else in the world, is bolstered by an ink-and-watercolor illustration, featuring Nancy covered in bows and boas, ribbons and wrappings. The vocabulary builders include great words—such as improvise and parasol—but kids will have fun with the concept, too. Grades K-2. --Ilene Cooper

This book is really cute, as are all of the Fancy Nancy books. There is one word for each letter of the alphabet - one letter (word) per page - each word is beautifully illustrated. The book is smaller than the regular Fancy Nancy books, it's a little smaller than a sheet of notebook paper.

The words are the usual "fancy" words that Nancy uses. As for learning, I would recommend this for younger (3yr - 6yr) children. For enjoyment -the illustrations are my favorite - this book is great for all ages =)

Instead of a story, this charming Fancy Nancy book is an A-to-Z list of expressive words sure to expand your child's vocabulary. Don't be surprised if you hear your little girl tell you she yearns for a gorgeous -- not understated -- wardrobe, complete with accessories such as a lavender boa, a glamorous tiara and a monogrammed parasol. That one sentence includes 11 of the fancy words in this hardback.

Illustrations are always the heart of a Fancy Nancy book, and this one's no exception. Expressive pen and ink over brilliant watercolor, they not only bring Nancy's imaginative world to life, but are also loaded with teeny little details. You, or your child, can look at each page for a long time.

Nancy would approve of the cover. It's very fancy, with glossy glittery sparkles on the artwork and the words. When you take off the paper sleeve, the cover has the same artwork but without the sparkles.

Format: Hardcover
Your young reader's vocabulary will glitter and glow with all the shine of Fancy Nancy's Favorite Fancy Words: From Accessories to Zany. The book cover's glitter is only a hint of all that shines inside this charmingly hilarious vocabulary book. The illustrations are as splendid as the words Nancy discovered to say the most ordinary things, raising them up to the level that will make you exclaim "Ooh la la!"

Even the vocabulary review at the end of the book is presented in a charming and fascinating manner. This book is guaranteed to be one of your child's favorite books!

Fancy Nancy is back! This time she has a "dictionary"! It features word for each letter of the alphabet. After the word comes description and a picture that goes along with the word.

The cover caught my girls, ages 3 and 5, eyes right away! It's full of sparkly glitter !

If you are a Fancy Nancy fan this book is a must read!
