Building on O'Connor and Glasser's bestselling series, ultimate girly-girl Fancy Nancy makes vocabulary glamorous in this A–Z compendium (“That's fancy for collection”). As O'Connor explains in a foreword, “When you use [a fancy word] in a sentence, it's like adding sprinkles to vanilla ice cream!” The chosen words are generally helpful (hostess, wardrobe, understated) rather than precocious (ooh la la!), and reflect Fancy Nancy's special style. For example, to introduce the word “improvise,” as in “I wanted a canopy bed so I had to improvise. I used a sheet, a mop, and a broom,” Glasser shows the minimaven lolling in bed with bonbons and a tea tray, broomsticks supporting a canopy of perfectly ruffled gingham. Ooh la la, indeed! Ages 4-7.
