I pre-ordered this for my five-year old daughter. She loves everything Fancy Nancy, and we have all of the other books. At the time of the order, there wasn't a description, so I was really surprised when it arrived and it was a chapter book (124 pages total) with a minimum of black and white drawings every few pages. I decided we would read a chapter a night. We already read four books at bedtime, and I figured we would replace one of the four books with a chapter from this book. She convinced me to read two that first night and two the next night. Today she was out of school for Good Friday and woke up talking about the book. We sat down and finished the book this morning, and she sat in rapt attention listening to every word, and commenting on it occasionally. She absolutely loved it, and then played detective for an hour after we were done. I highly recommend this book. Now that we are done, she still wants to read a few chapters each night. You also find out the name of Nancy's dad in this book, and Mrs. Devine's childhood name. We can't wait for more in this series of chapter books!

My daughter got this for Easter and loves it! She still loves other Fancy Nancy books, but is very into chapter books now. She is already asking when the next one will come out! I have not seen her this excited about a book in awhile!

Fancy Nancy who has been so popular with little girls, is growing up and now appears in her first chapter book for ages (7-10).

Fancy Nancy Clancy, Super Sleuth, features Nancy and her best friend Bree. Both girls love Nancy Drew books, and have learned a thing of two from them. When her teachers favorite blue marble disappears Nancy, dressed in a pink trench coat and sunglasses is on the case. She and Bree turn the tree house into a detective agency, and are determined to solve the mystery of of missing blue marble.

As with the previously Fancy Nancy books, there are plenty of new words and definitions to be found in this book. It's not just a fun mystery, but it is educational as well.

As an adult, I can appreciate the intent to have a continued appeal to girls who are a bit older than the target age of the original Fancy Nancy series. I felt this one was still awfully fun, but just seemed a tad less "fancy" ( fewer illustrations, black and white), than the earlier books geared toward younger girls. Fancy Nancy fans will still like it. (4.5/5 stars)

My daughter and I read the Fancy Nancy books over and over. She loves them and I enjoy the vocabulary they introduce to her. Now that she is older, the books are falling a little short of the desired reading range. I was very happy to find that Fancy Nancy was "growing up" with my little girl. My daughter was very excited when I told her about the new book I had bought her.
My only disappointment with the book is that it seemed very challenging compared to the original stories. I read the information posted about the book before purchased and it seemed to fit the level my daughter is reading at. She struggled and got a little frustrated with the challenging words. In the first chapter alone we faced words like criminal, heist and snorkel! However, she does plan to continue with the story, asking me after finishing the first chapter if she could read more tomorrow night.
My review is merely this; check out the story before introducing it with your child. If they are transitioning into chapter books, this might be a little challenging!
Perhaps in a year I will gladly check out the others in this series.

Let me start by saying that my almost 6-year-old loved this book, but the Fancy Nancy moniker assured us of that before we even opened to the first page. As to Daddy and I, who read the book to her, we enjoyed it, but agreed that it lacked much of the charm of the Fancy Nancy series.

The story takes Nancy through three "mysteries" that she and Bree have decided to solve, a la the famous Nancy Drew. While this was sort of cute for us adults who have a knowledge of Nancy Drew, the many, many references to Nancy Drew went right over my 5-year-old's head. She hasn't read Nancy Drew, and those books are geared toward older kids. While attempting to solve one mystery, Nancy and Bree are concerned that they are going to get caught in a "booby trap." While Jane O'Connor is usually great about defining the "fancy" words in her books, she doesn't provide a definition for this term, yet uses it repeatedly as an important plot device. Likewise, with other words in the book, I kept waiting to see the clarification of something as "fancy," but O'Connor didn't use the term. I realize that this chapter book is intended for an older child than the original Fancy Nancy series, but to leave out such seminal phrasing took some of the charm out of Nancy. Sure, she's growing up, but I missed her overzealousness from the original books.

The story is fun in its inclusion of characters from previous Fancy Nancy books, notably Bree and Rhonda and Wanda. But only brief mention is given to Mrs. DeVine (and she doesn't actually appear in the story), and Miss Glass is completely gone, replaced by Nancy's current teacher, Mr. Dudeny. While I have to give O'Connor credit for adding an adult male to the cast of characters, I didn't care much for the new teacher.
