Since the publication of Fancy Nancy, Jane O’Connor’s closet now boasts so many boas, tiaras, and sparkly ensembles that sometimes friends do not recognize her on the street. She still resides (that’s a fancy word for lives) in New York City with her family and their canine companion, Arrow. –from the publisher’s website

This story is really cute. It reminded me of Scones and Sensibility, but intended for a slightly younger audience. The illustrations are a nice addition to the story and give children a good visual aid to the words.
This book will appeal to young girls just starting to explore the world of romance.
