Horn Book Review

Nancy faces her fear of jellyfish while on a class trip. She and her classmates plan a surprise birthday bash for an unnamed-until-book's-end guest of honor. Party covers familiar Fancy Nancy terrain; Jellyfish is somewhat fresher; but both books will hook beginning readers (who'll need help with "fancy words"). The frilly art that Glasser made famous comes via fine facsimile. Glos.
