Fancy Nancy and the Boy from Paris

Fancy Nancy and the Boy from Paris

by Jane O'Connor Illustrated by Ted Enik, Robin Preiss Glasser

Watch the Video Book Trailer.

Paris, France is the fanciest city in the world. When Ms. Glass tells the class that the new student is from Paris, Nancy cannot believe her luck. Nancy brushes up on her fanciest French words. She is ready to make a new ami. (In French that means "friend.")

But Robert would rather talk about horses than the Eiffel Tower. Robert may not be as fancy as Nancy, but that doesn't mean they can't have fun!

About the Author and Illustrators

Jane O'Connor 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.
