There is a new boy in Nancy's class. He's just moved from Paris! Nancy cannot wait to share her fanciness with someone who will appreciate it. Unfortunately, this Parisian might not be quite as fancy as Nancy had expected.

(synopsis from Goodreads)

Nancy is really excited to learn that her new classmate, Robert, is from Paris. She seems to be enamoured with all things French, so she immediately sets out to befriend the boy, sharing her lunch with him and inviting him over to play. But Robert turns out to be not quite what Nancy was expecting (although I wasn't exactly surprised; I thought there might've been a twist like that coming).

This book features the same adorable illustrations as the other Fancy Nancy books, as well as more "fancy" words... including some French ones. It's just as cute as the other books I've read so far, and I really can't complain. This would be another great addition to your I Can Read! collection.
