Fancy Nancy and the Boy from Paris

The lovable character of Fancy Nancy (from Jane O'Connor's popular picture books) is the latest star in the I Can Read beginning reader series. In "Fancy Nancy and the Boy from Paris" a new boy comes to Fancy Nancy's school. He is introduced as the new boy from Paris. Immediately Nancy is interested! She loves anything fancy and french. She invites him over to her house to play soccer. True to the Fancy Nancy picture book formate, the reader is inadvertantly introduced to some new fancy words: three french words and four english words to be exact. A fun twist at the end reveals where the new boy is REALLY from. Despite the pink and glitter, both boys and girls will enjoy this book.
