From Booklist

Holiday season for Fancy Nancy means a decorated house, delectable goodies, and the opportunity to finally use the angel tree topper she bought last summer with her own money. The tree topper is everything the box promised: it spins, it flashes, it changes colors. But a fight with the dog results in a knocked-over tree and a broken topper. Grandpa to the rescue, and Nancy loves her homemade tree topper as much as the fancy one, which stretches credulity a bit. However, Christmas is the perfect time for all sorts of fancy doings, which the always-fun artwork makes abundantly and amusingly clear. Preschool-Grade 1. --Ilene Cooper

Fancy Nancy Splendiferous Christmas

Fancy Nancy, what an adorable "fancy girl" she is, and wait until you read about her Christmas! Presents with elegant wrapping paper, fancy cookies, and wait until you see the tree topper Nancy purchased with her own money. But me things go awry, can Nancy still have a "splendiferous Christmas"?

MY THOUGHTS - This book is so very adorable. Targeted for the (4-8) age group, the book is beautifully illustrated by: Robin Preiss Glasser. There are some great new words for the little readers as well:

* aroma - nancy says: "a fancy word for smell"
* heirlooms - nancy says: "fancy for thinks that are old and valuable".
* delectable - nancy says: "fancy for yummy".
* pleading - nancy says: "like begging only fancier" AND........
* splendiferous - nancy says " only one word describes how magnificent, joyous and sparkly Christmas morning is"

Truly a delightful holiday read for children (and adults too)!

I bought my granddaughter, Mary Mace, her first Fancy Nancy book when she was just 3 years old in 2007. She fell head over high heels in love with the witty, sparkly Nancy and her over-the-top ways. Since January of 2007, I have bought her every Fancy Nancy book and she devoured them, memorizing the story as her mother read them to her.

When she got this book last week, she immediately called me. She's now almost 6 years old and in kindergarten. She said, "Grammy, I love, love, love the new Fancy Nancy book. It's utterly splendiferous!" I laughed and asked her about the story and she told me all about it. Then my daughter got on the phone and told me that Mary Mace was recently tested and promoted to a first grade reader because she's so far ahead of the other children. Her teacher was amazed by how many 'big' words Mary Mace knew. My daughter and I both agreed that Fancy Nancy played a huge part in expanding Mary Mace's vocabulary. Each book is full of exciting, fun words and synonyms and the artwork is fabulous and glittering.

If you're looking for a book to make a little girl extremely happy this year for Christmas, I highly recommend this book and all of the Fancy Nancy books. They're not only fun, but also educational!

What an adorable book! I've been waiting for a Christmas related story of our favorite fancy girl, and this did not disappoint at all. Yet again, Nancy is perfectly fancy, perfectly eloquent, and perfectly heartwarming. We are huge fans of both Fancy Nancy and Christmas in our house, and this book is a perfect addition to our holiday collection. A must for all Fancy girls out there!

My daughter has asked me to read this book every day since Christmas Eve. We're three weeks past Christmas so I better hurry and order more Fancy Nancy books. This story is wonderful and my 3 year old loves it. She actually used the word devastated the other night when I told her to get out of the tub! The story is so sweet and I'm glad that although you do see cookies and things out for Santa, the focus of the story is not gifts and the man in red. We don't teach Santa in our home so it's very refreshing. It's just about family and making your Christmas special in whatever way you can. Five stars!

Tada another great Fancy Nancy story. Fancy Nancy takes on Christmas where the more decorations the merrier. From decorating the house, to buying the tree at Bruces Spruces, to the elegantly wrapped presents, Christmas is done up Fancy Nancy style--splendiferously. If you are familiar with the Fancy Nancy series then you can see the appeal she holds for young and old alike. This book is just a Joyeux Noel of Christmas.

Jane O'Connor and Robin Preiss Glasser have delivered again, and just in time for Christmas. Splendiferous Christmas follows Nancy Clancy through her holiday preparations. As usual, she wants to make everything as fancy as possible, and, with only a few hitches, she succeeds. Now, if only Grandpa would arrive so she could decorate the tree... The story is just as adorable as the other books, and the illustrations are absolutely enchanting. As an artist, I have fairly high standards for illustrators, and Ms. Glasser more than meets them.

All in all, Fancy Nancy: Splendiferous Christmas is a delightful book. It's the perfect present for all the fancy little girls in my life, and I hope it is for all of them in yours.

What little girl does not love bling, glitter and Fancy Nancy? The illustrations are "splendiferous" and the story line endearing. It will definitely become a Christmas Classic.

This is one of the most adorable books I have seen in a long time. I bought it for my 4 year old granddaughter. She & I had a private moment on Christmas Day when I read it to her & that made my Christmas, "Splendiferous"!
