Fancy Nancy is back in New York Times bestselling team Jane O'Connor and Robin Preiss Glasser's tenth picture book, Fancy Nancy and the Wedding of the Century—all about weddings. Not only does Nancy help out the bride in this wonderful story, she also gets to attend a fabulous party reception! Fans of Fancy Nancy and weddings alike will laugh along with Nancy as she discovers how truly special even the simplest wedding can be. Little girls will delight in learning about bridal traditions with their favorite fancy girl, and as in all Fancy Nancy books, Nancy's wisdom and creativity shine through to spark the joy of imagination in young readers.

My daughter (4 almost 5) and I went to the library the other day and near the front was a display of new books for kids. She saw the beautiful cover for Fancy Nancy and the Wedding of the Century and she knew we had to check it out! Within the first few days we read it a dozen times. The illustrations are beautiful-bright and fun! We also loved the story. Nancy has high expectations of the wedding she is going to and is disappointed when it isn't her dream wedding. Nancy doesn't spend too much time being upset when there is so much fun to be had! Plus she can add a bit of tradition is a not-so-traditional ceremony.

I will definitely check out and buy more Fancy Nancy books! My daughter says, "the best thing about Fancy Nancy books is Fancy Nancy!" that says it all!
