FANCY NANCY AND THE POSH PUPPY

Age Range: 3 - 7

KIRKUS REVIEW

Fancy Nancy Clancy, the charming child who likes beads, baubles and big words, returns for another fanciful adventure that will please her adoring audience. As in the first entry in the series, Nancy dresses to the nines, uses sophisticated vocabulary and tries valiantly to elevate her family’s tastes from practical to fantastic. In this sequel, the Clancy family is planning to buy a puppy, and Nancy wants a French papillon like Jewel, the pampered pooch owned by their next-door neighbor. When Nancy and her family arrange to dogsit for Jewel, they realize that such a tiny, delicate breed doesn’t fit their lifestyle after all. They visit a shelter and adopt a larger, more playful dog named Frenchy, who can play games and do tricks and still be dressed up in doggie accessories. Glasser’s appealing ink-and-watercolor illustrations again add considerable charm to Nancy’s precocious personality, from her dog bone–bedecked headband and poodle skirt right down to her lacy, heart-embroidered socks. Nancy seems destined for more explorations of things frou-frou and frilly—perhaps a shopping trip to Paris with Frenchy? (Picture book. 3-7)
