What's This Book About

Publisher Summary

Presents with elegant wrapping paper, festive decorations, Christmas cookies with sprinkles – and who could forget the tree? After all, there is no such thing as too much tinsel.

Ooh la la! This year, Nancy is especially excited about decorating the Christmas tree. She bought a brand-new sparkly tree topper with her own money and has been waiting for Christmas to come. But when things don’t turn out the way Nancy planned, will Christmas still be splendiferous?

In this merriest of stories from bestselling duo Jane O’Connor and Robin Preiss Glasser, Nanyc proves once again that a little fancying up can go a long, festive way!

5.0 / 7.0

This is a cute Christmas book in true Fancy Nancy style—full of big words and easy explanations and just a touch of glamor. I didn’t expect to love it (series books often lose their charm), but it was truly enjoyable.
