Beribboned, fuchsia-loving, feather-wearing Nancy absolutely adores being fancy, and wants her very plain family to take part in the pleasure of frills too. After posting a purple-inked sign on the refrigerator advertising fancy classes, Nancy holds court in her bedroom, where she educates them about the many differences between "plain" and "fancy." Soon, covered in exciting accessories, everyone heads out to a fabulous dinner that proves familial love is stronger than anything, even without the baubles and style. With bright, free-flowing watercolor and pen-and-ink illustrations.
Meet Nancy, who believes that more is ALWAYS better when it comes to being fancy. From the top of her tiara down to her sparkly studded shoes, Nancy is determined to teach her family a thing or two about being fancy.
How Nancy transforms her parents and little sister for one enchanted evening makes for a story that is funny and warm -- with or without the frills.
