Fancy Nancy Grows Up! "Nancy Clancy Super Sleuth"


Nancy Clancy is on the case!
Nancy Clancy has everything she needs to be a super sleuth (that's a fancy word for detective): She has a glamorous magnifying glass complete with rhinestones, a totally professional pink trench coat, and a sleuthing partner with awesome code-breaking skills—her best friend, Bree. But when crime strikes right in the middle of her classroom, will Nancy have what it takes to crack the case?


Published by:  Harper Collins
Pages:  144
Series:  Fancy Nancy Series
Genre:  Children's Fiction
Age Group:  6-10 years


Jane O'Connor is the author of more than thirty books for children, including the Nina, Nina Ballerina stories, illustrated by DyAnne DiSalvo, and the Fancy Nancy picture book series. Ms. O'Connor lives with her family in ever-posh New York City.
How wonderful that Fancy Nancy is growing up along with her little fans!  I read this book to my special grandgirl, Hadley, over a tape recorder and sent it and the book to her to get her reaction.  She loved it!
Proof that she was ready to move ahead with Fancy Nancy as they both are getting older and not just playing dress-up anymore. 
Quite the awesome sleuth, Nancy Clancy.  I think this is the perfect entre' into a whole new world for the up-and-coming readers and soon-to-be pre-teen set.  Jane O'Connor isn't just fancy, she's imaginative and savvy, too.
In keeping with her well-known humor, Ms O'Connor has brought Nancy along but given her a new intelligence and importance.  I think parents and children, both, will love this new series.
Highly recommended!
5 stars
