From the dazzling bestselling duo Jane O’Connor and Robin Preiss Glasser, a picture book with an educational twist for the fancy girl with an even fancier vocabulary.

Fancy words are simply fascinating! Learn how to speak fancy with help from Nancy in this A–Z guide.

From everyone's favorite fancy girl comes an alphabetical guide to enhancing vocabulary. Why say "beautiful" when there are fancy words like "gorgeous" and "glamorous"? Instead of "hello," try "bonjour," which is French and so much fancier! An umbrella will keep you dry, but a parasol will make you feel like a Hollywood movie star!

With this helpful A-to-Z guide, Fancy Nancy shows that making plain words into fancy ones is not only educational, it's fun. Glossary of words included.

(synopsis from Goodreads)

I really would've liked this book when I was a kid! It's basically an alphabet book for older kids featuring lots of fancy words. Each one is illustrated (with pictures you'll probably recognize from other Fancy Nancy titles, if you've read enough of them) and used in a sentence so readers can get context.

There's not much more to say about this one. But if you like Fancy Nancy and her fancy words, this is probably a book you'll want to add to your collection.
