138 - Fancy Nancy: Halloween..... or Bust; Jane O'Connor and Robin Preiss Glasser

Fancy Nancy: Halloween.... or Bust is the perfect October read for your little Fancy Girl. Nancy shows you that Halloween is ALL about dressing up. Nancy knows how to make everything even more fancy, with special touches, and special FANCY words that give the ordinary a new meaning. Here are just a few of the new words Fancy Nancy introduces the young readers to:
  • Unique - one of a kind
  • bonbons -fancy candy
  • disastrous - very bad
Nancy's Halloween Party included games such as, pin the tail on the monster, but before the party is over Nancy experiences something "disastrous"  herself -- it has to do with her costume. Fortunately, the readers lucky enough to read this book, can help Nancy make a new costume with the lovely stickers that come with this book.

I've read and reviewed several Fancy Nancy books and have enjoyed them all, and this one is no exception. I'm not quite sure, but for some reason, this Halloween story seemed to have fewer "fancy" words, than the other books, but I could be wrong.  A fun read for a fun Holiday! Little Girls will love it.

RATING - 4.5/5 stars

  1. This sounds like a fun book for a youngster. Great review!

  2. I love the Fancy Nancy books and am so sad that my husband's granddaughter has moved on from them to Hello Kitty - no comparison, in my opinion!

  3. That is a cool cover and the book sounds interesting too!

  4. I know a fancy little girl who would get a huge kick out of this book, and I am glad to have read this review and gotten the chance to find out about it!

  5. I really enjoy Fancy Nancy books as well.
