Test Your Fancy Nancy Trivia

0 33

Do you know Fancy Nancy? Well if you are a 4 to 6 year old girl you surely know who she is. Nancy, the creative brilliance of author Jane O’Connor, is a young girl who loves all things offbeat. The series’ original story book, aptly titled “Fancy Nancy,” tells the story of Nancy, a little girl with curly auburn hair who loves to speak fancy French words, dresses in fancy clothes, and loves pretty much anything else that’s fancy . Even Nancy’s favorite doll is very chic – her doll’s name, Marabelle, is short for Marabelle Lavinia Chandelier. Unfortunately, the rest of Nancy’s family is very nondescript. Nancy even goes so far as to teach her family the difference between simple and chic. Glasses…simple, sunglasses…chic! Nancy’s signature attire is a cow print leotard paired with a poodle skirt, fairy wings, cat eye sunglasses, leg warmers, ballet slippers and a tiara. Robin Preiss Glasser’s unique and whimsical illustrations add to the delightful nature of these books.

In the following picture books in the Fancy Nancy series, including Bonjour Butterfly, Posh Puppy and Explorer Extraordinaire, you will meet Nancy’s dog Frenchy and her best friend Bree.

Jane O’Connor’s inspiration for all of her books, including the Fancy Nancy series, comes from her own life experiences or those of her family. Every Sunday afternoon when Jane was about 4 or 5 years old, her grandmother and great aunts would come to visit Jane and her family. “As soon as I heard the doorbell,” says Jane, “I dashed into my room, hopped into my pink tutu, wrapped myself in a satin red robe, and galloped out to greet my guests in a pair of my mother’s high heels.” I wasn’t a girlie girl, but I thought it was important to look chic when I had company.” O’Connor was Fancy Jane long before she wrote Fancy Nancy.

What does being chic mean to Nancy? It means frilly toothpicks in sandwiches, eating with your pinky raised, lace-trimmed socks while playing soccer, and do-it-yourself canopies over her bed.
