Review
  • Vain, affected, frilly, and old-fashioned girly in every way, preschooler Nancy is also assertive about who she is and what she wants, and she becomes furious when she cannot get her way. Angry is too plain a word for how she feels when she misses her friend's butterfly party because she has to attend her grandparents' fiftieth wedding anniversary. But the anniversary trip turns out to be lots of fun and just her style, with "queen" beds and lotions in a fancy hotel. Best of all, though, is the visit to a butterfly garden in the local zoo. Glasser's intricately detailed, line-and-watercolor pictures show the prima donna's obsession with bows, beads, and glitter, including her hat with a nesting bird and two butterflies. As in Fancy Nancy (2006), the little princess loves fancy words, this time throwing in some French: "Ooh la la!" -- Rochman, Hazel (Reviewed 03-15-2008) (Booklist, vol 104, number 14, p55)
  • PreS-Gr 2— Another delicious "Fancy Nancy" book. This time the little glamour girl has a problem. Her friend Bree is having an extra-special butterfly birthday party on the same day that Nancy's grandparents are celebrating their 50th wedding anniversary. The family party wins out and Nancy is "furious" ("Mad is way too plain for how I feel"). But things turn out unexpectedly well: she discovers that motels are fun, and that grandparents have elegant and extraordinary parties and an exciting surprise up their sleeves. Glasser's illustrations and O'Connor's text have created the quintessential girly girl in Nancy. The red-haired heroine is so full of joie de vivre (as she would say) as she dances through the book in her finery—bows, ribbons, butterflies, beads, flowers, and all—that little girls everywhere will happily enjoy this adventure.—Judith Constantinides, formerly at East Baton Rouge Parish Main Library, LA --Judith Constantinides (Reviewed May 1, 2008) (School Library Journal, vol 54, issue 5, p104)
