Horn Book Review

Nancy is cuckoo for fifth grader Violet, her big-kid reading buddy (Buddies); Nancy finds her school's Backward Day to be thrillingly confusing--and sees an opportunity to finagle a class fashion show (Backward). Despite the limited vocabulary in these easy readers, O'Connor keeps things fresh and fancy. The illustrations, "based on the art of Robin Preiss Glasser," hit all the frilly-flowery marks. Glos. [Review covers the following I Can Read Book titles: Fancy Nancy Best Reading Buddies and Fancy Nancy It's Backward Day!.] (c) Copyright 2017.
