    I don t think this is one of my favourites The story just seems a little weak compared to some of the others.Nancy is all excited to go to her friend s birthday party But it happens to be on the same day as her grandparents anniversary party, which is out of town So Nancy basically gets mad and sulks in the lead up to the party The illustrations are actually pretty amusing here The pictures of her being devastated, disappointed, and dramatic are funny Eventually, she has fun celebrating the special day with her family and she apologizes for being angry earlier After that, as a bit of a consolation prize, her mom takes her to the butterfly garden at the local zoo and Nancy sees a pretty blue butterfly just like the one she was going to dress up as for Bree s Butterfly Birthday party.I did like the fact that Nancy apologized for her behaviour, but I felt sympathy for her, too What kid wants to go to a party for a couple of old folks when there s a butterfly themed kids party being dangled in front of their nose So this one was just okay for me It s not a bad book, but it doesn t quite live up to some of the others that I ve previously read.

    This is a particularly good Fancy Nancy story Nancy is thrilled when her friend Bree is about to have a butterfly themed birthday party, and Nancy even has a blue butterfly costume picked out to wear Then she finds out she can t attend the party because she needs to attend her grandparents 50th anniversary party Nancy sulks and mourns, then she finds out her grandparents party is fancy too, and there is a butterfly surprise on that trip as well.This is a lovely story re grandparents grandchildren Anyone who likes butterflies and other Fancy Nancy books will love it I was shocked when I first found out how much I like these Fancy Nancy books, and I continue to remain amazed by their substance and by how good they really are Charming, particularly great for girly girls, and a wonderful way to add to youngsters vocabulary The illustrations are fun and full of delightful details.

    This third book in the Fancy Nancy series is still beautifully illustrated like the previous volumes, and Nancy is still a very fun character to read However, the story about having to give up going to a friend s birthday party to attend her grandparents 50th wedding anniversary wasn t as interesting as the previous books I think it was because Nancy spent several pages sulking, which gave the book a darker tone than usual.

    If I was underwhelmed by the second book in this series, this third book than made up for it The story was sweet, and taught a good message without being preachy, but Glasser s art stole the show Nancy was a drama queen extraordinaire that s French for Wow, can Glasser draw The gestures and facial expressions of the main characters are exaggerated and melodramatic in a delightful manner, especially Nancy When she didn t get her way, she slumped over a swing, and stormed around blackly in mourning She threw her arms about as if she was on stage, broadcasting her emotions to patrons in the back of the theater Yet the subtle moments were also captured well, from warm and bemused smiles to Nancy s sister exhausted in her mother s arms Meanwhile, O Connor continued to entertain with charming text and fancy words sure to challenge any beginning reader I m glad this book is part of my collection.

    This book is pretty stinking cute with beautiful illustrations I like that that it dealt with a truly devestating thing for a kid but she learned about the most important thing being with her family.

    Ok on the good side it talks about validating feelings in a way that I think is pretty constructive ie it doesn t try to minimize or repress how bad the child feels or censor her feelings It also looks at the theme of not getting what you want which is a realistic theme in any child s life and cleverly points out that sometimes you get something better than you expected That s where I begin to have mixed feelings.Nancy is reconciled to missing her best friend s birthday because of externals how fancy and luxurious the trip is and the chance to go to a butterfly house Obviously any child ought to and would be delighted with these things but the book seems to put a higher value on fanciness and consumer experiences than it does on relationships.It s not in her relationship with her grandparents that she finds solace and meaning it s in the way they dazzle her with a wealthy lifestyle I began to feel that the upset was less about her best friend s party in the sense of relationship and about missing out.It is sad to miss out, I get it But for an extremely wealthy and spoilt child like Nancy missing out is all remediated by bigger, better spoiling This is every child s fantasy of course but not a healthy world view Once again the pictures were as cute and appealing as pictures can get and the presentation of loving, caring, wonderful and wealthy family life will be popular.I did like that her best friend also dazzlingly rich and popular was black That s a bit like Nancy a female character being opinionated and in touch with her feelings and her voice So crumbs of good in a series I still overwhelmingly don t like.
