Fancy Nancy Artist – Book Review


For Fancy Nancy spring vacation looms lonely. Her friend Bree is gone to New York- (a very glamorous place) and Nancy is glum. Mom knows just how to cheer her up -- with a new set of glitter markers!

Fancy Nancy – Aspiring Artist by author and illustrator duo Jane O’Conner and Robin Preiss Glasser

New glitter markers give her a really great idea. She will turn her clubhouse into an art studio and spend her vacation making gorgeous works of art. As an artist she will also need an artist smock and beret (that’s French for cap).

Every day of the week we find Nancy working on different types of art. She draws ballerinas after the ballet lesson, then spends time outside painting just like Monet who painted outdoors even in the winter. She makes art using colored paper that she cuts out, just like Henri Matisse – her butterflies have two different colored wings because artist are allowed to break the rules.

Her dad takes her to the museum where she sees a real painting by Claude Monet – it’s so beautiful that it makes her happy. Then they see some artwork by Jackson Pollock and that gives them the idea to do a really big painting just he did by laying a sheet out in the yard and makings swirls and splatters of different colors of leftover house paint. Saturday has become Jackson Pollock Day – it’s fun and silly!

They have an art show and invite all their friends and neighbors. They make a sign announcing the exhibit (a fancy word for show). It is a great idea!







Note: All Fancy Nancy books are from my personal collection.

Who is Fancy Nancy?

Nancy is a darling little girl who believes that more is always better with it comes to being fancy. She loves to be decked out in a fancy tiara and sparkly shoes and is always looking for the opportunity to teach her family more ways to be fancy. The most endearing characteristic of Fancy Nancy is all the big, fancy words she likes to use. She loves words such as “iridescent”, and “ecstatic” and “extraordinary” and loves French words – but she always explains what the words actually mean so without seeming like a lesson she shares the opportunity to learn new and fancy vocabulary words.
