Fancy Nancy is the main character in a series of books written by Jane O'Connor and illustrated by Robin Preiss Glasser. The stories are geared to girls aged four to eight (my granddaughter is almost four years old). I have only read a couple of the books, but I like the way the author introduces unusual words in her text. For example: "My favorite color is fuchsia. That's a fancy way of saying purple." In this story, Nancy and her best friend Bree vie for the coveted role of mermaid in the ballet. When Bree wins the role, Nancy must learn how to handle her disappointment.
Photos were not allowed during the performance and I was hesitant to take pictures of other children, but I did get a few of my granddaughter to share.

|Do you think my granddaughter was excited?|
|All the attendees dressed in fancy clothes,|
from their heads to their toes.
|I can dance too, Grandma!|
By the way, Disney will be making a Fancy Nancy movie and has a TV series in the works too.
