Fancy Nancy thinks butterflies are simply exquisite. And that is why she can't wait for her friend Bree's Butterfly Birthday. It's going to be the fanciest birthday party ever!

But when Nancy finds out she can't go because her grandparents' fiftieth anniversary party is the same day, she is furious. (Mad is way too plain for how she feels.) How Nancy overcomes her disappointment and reconnects with her family is a fun and meaningful story for young readers.

Perfect for fans of the Eloise and Olivia books. From the dazzling New York Times bestselling duo Jane O’Connor and Robin Preiss Glasser.

This edition is a hardcover without a separate jacket.

Ooh la la! Fancy Nancy is starring in her own fabulous TV show on Disney Junior. READ THE BOOKS THAT STARTED IT ALL!

My daughter loves all the Fancy Nancy books. They never disappoint my budding diva. I enjoy reading them to her. We hope there will be more to come

These books are so much fun for your little Divas. I love that it introduces my daughter to 'fancy' words and encourages her to expand her vocabulary even more. We started with 'Fancy Nancy' a week ago and my 4 year old already has it memorized. We just bought everything else 'Nancy' tonight. The books are wonderful, which is a fancy word for great. They encourage individuality, self expression, imagination and vocabulary expansion. And they are just fun to read!

Sweetly drawn characters with child friendly prose. Cute story with a little lesson about conversational expressions. Its a fun read aloud that I use to introduce idioms and colloquialisms. Students love to hear this book and it is always on the check out 'wait list'.

My four year old daughter loves this series about a little girl who loves being fancy. As you read the story she uses words like azure, extraordinary, iridescent, etc. and then says which is fancy for.... so it's a great way to add to her vocabulary.

Fancy Nancy: Bonjour, Butterfly, by Jane O¿Connor, is another example of a realistic fiction book for younger readers, mainly of the female variety. Fancy Nancy is a loveable character who is very into anything fancy. She speaks some French and loves to dress up herself, her dog, her tea parties, etc. In this particular story, Fancy Nancy is helping her best friend Bree plan her birthday party. The theme is butterflies. The invitations are butterflies, the birthday cake is a butterfly, and Fancy Nancy is planning on dressing up as an azure butterfly. She is very excited, until she is informed by her mother that she will not attend Bree¿s party because the family is traveling out of town to celebrate her grandparent¿s 50th wedding anniversary. Fancy Nancy is crushed, and in her words, ¿For the next two days, I scowl and sulk and storm around the house. Mad is way too plain for how I feel.¿ In the end, Fancy Nancy apologizes to her mother for her behavior and admits she is ¿ecstatic¿ to be at the anniversary party. The day after the party her grandparents take her to a butterfly garden where she sees an azure butterfly. O¿Connor takes a typical situation for any child, missing a birthday party for another commitment, and turns it into a lesson for the young reader. While missing a friend¿s birthday party, even a best friend¿s birthday party, is almost tragic in the mind of a child, it sometimes cannot be avoided. Sometimes priorities trump the fun activities of life and dealing with the disappointment is part of growing up. While Fancy Nancy tried hard not to have a good time at her grandparents anniversary party, she eventually accepted the reality of not going to Bree¿s birthday party and made the best of it.
