      We have read so many Fancy Nancy books that our girls have become quite familiar with the characters and they feel like old friends to us. So I was quite pleased to see this chapter book featuring slightly older versions of the characters. Just when our girls were starting to outgrow the series, Nancy and Bree grew along with them. Hooray! (I must admit, however, that I do hope that Pinkalicious remains in her little kid niche - I really don't want to revisit with her again!) Slightly off-topic [...]

      From the back of the book:Nancy Clancy has everything she needs to be a super sleuth (that's a fancy word for detective): She has a glamorous magnifying glass complete with rhinestones, a totally professional pink trench coat, and a sleuthing partner with awesome code-breaking skills -- her best friend, Bree. Now all she needs is a good mystery to solve. But when crime strikes right in the middle of her classroom, will Nancy have what it takes to crack the case?Fancy Nancy is back! Only this tim [...]

      Fancy Nancy of picture book-fame makes her transition into, well, transitional chapter books in this mystery-lite read. For whatever reason, Nancy (notice she's dropped the "Fancy" at the beginning of her name) has become an amateur detective. Is this an organic progression character-wise? I have no idea as I'm not too familiar with her earlier adventures. At least she's held onto her fanciness in her wardrobe and vocabulary, investigating two mysteries, one involving a missing marble, the other [...]

      What a sweet book! I wish that this had been around when I was the target age. Despite the easy reading level, the prose was rich and engaging, and the occasional black and white illustrations were cute and detailed. The content of the story and character interactions were realistic, and I appreciated the sweet portrayal of family. With so many books trying to reflect reality with fractured, broken families, it was a nice change to have a loving, two parent household presented as a healthy norm. [...]

      Move over Nancy DrewNancy Clancy is on the case! With her stylish pink trench coat, bejeweled magnifying glass and an arsenal of vocabulary words, she will solve any mystery that comes her way. Nancy and her BFF, Bree, are spending a considerable amount of time snooping around trying to find a mystery. Any mystery will do, they just want to practice their sleuthing skills. Their teacher, Mr. Dudeny, has assigned a superb writing assignment which might lead to a mystery for the girls. Having a my [...]

      Nancy idolizes Nancy Drew and wants to solve cases just like her favorite heroine, but what do you do when there's no mysteries to solve? Nancy and Bree soon have not 1 but 2 mysteries to solve: the case of the twins and the case of the missing blue marble. Nancy's first chapter book is full of fancy words and secret messages to decode. Illustrations and short chapters make this a title with appeal for newly independent readers. I missed the color from the illustrations in the Fancy Nancy pictur [...]

      A fun and cute updating of Fancy Nancy for a slightly older audience. In homage to Nancy Drew, our Nancy wants to become a sleuth with her friend Bree, and solve their own mysteries. Jane O'Conner's short book is supportive and encouraging to the book's target audience, and sure to appeal to them; it's a good introduction to the mystery genre for that age set. It's also lavishly illustrated in an almost too-cute manner by Robin Preiss Glasser.

      Nancy and her friend, Bree are the main characters. They are going to be detectives. When they go to school, crime strikes in Nancy's classroom. A sapphire blue marble was missing. Nancy and Bree are on the case. My favorite character is Bree because I like her black curly hair. My favorite part of book is when they went looking for clues together.

      I read this one with my daughter and she didn't care for it. I thought it was cute. I love this series as it is not dumb downed but uses a large vocublary for young readers. My daughter was bored with it. We will continue searching for her niche.

      A decent transition from the Fancy Nancy picture books, to an early chapter book series. Nancy is still fancy, but the focus moves to a more mature character with integrity, forgiveness and family values at its core. She may not be an outrageous character in her adventures, but I like that she is values-driven, and a decent kid (even though she can feel cross about things, and dislike certain kids in her classroom - a normal kid!). I thought the introduction of fancy words was done subtly and we [...]

      I've been working on reading chap books as I have very little knowledge about them and I'm frequently asked for recommendations for them at my work. I've previously read the Princess in Black and that was a fun one. This too is a really sweet, fun one, about a Nancy Drew wannabe who creates her own legend, in time. The age range is a little older than PIB, but it's an easier read than most Young Readers (Middle Grade) books, making it a nice transitional title.

      Fancy Nancy grew up! If your kid liked the Fancy Nancy picture books, or even if she has never heard of Fancy Nancy, I recommend the Nancy Clancy books. These are excellent early chapter books for kids in 2nd grade, or 1st graders with strong reading skills. They are good for reading aloud to kids in the early grades as well.

      My expectations for intermediate readers aren't terribly high--it is terribly difficult to write for emerging readers at a level they can comprehend and that still have a good story. This one fit the bill exactly. Two mysteries, interesting characters who aren't stereotypes, and a nice pace. Highly recommended for second and third graders.

      This book series was a good transition for my daughter and I into reading chapter books together. She was already a big Fancy Nancy fan and was interested in reading about more about Nancy and her friends. Since reading these books, we have gone on to read many other books together.

      This is a pretty fun book for a young reader. I read it alongside a pretty advanced grade 1 reader in my class, book club style. It was perfect for an advanced young reader. The content was appropriate and it was a really fun little mystery.

      Read this to my 4.5 year old who loves Fancy Nancy. She loved the book and we got another one the same day. Minus one star for words like dumb and stupid. I’m no prude with language, but there are better equivalents out there.

      A brilliant and mysterious new take on the Fancy Nancy series. As with Nancy's picture books, this chapter book encourages and demonstrates fun with new vocabulary words.

      Read with my children - a great story for this level of reading. Realistic characters, and I think the rest of this series will also be fun to read. Mystery and cuteness combined in one book!

      Good for fans of the original Fancy Nancy. I'm not a huge fan, but it was cute and I could imagine it getting girly girls interested in mysteries.

      Nancy Clancy is a funny girl who likes solving mysteries with her best friend Bree. She likes using big words, sleuth is a favorite AND she always looks fancy while on the job.

      Fancy Nancy has a new hobby - solving mysteries! Gone are the simple sentences and fancy new vocabulary words of the Fancy Nancy easy reader series. Gone are the full-color illustrations of her picture book days. Now Nancy and her best friend Bree are gathering clues and searching for suspects in this brand-new chapter book series. This first book focuses on not one, but two mysterious cases. The first case involves a conversation Nancy overhears in which her friend Wanda tells her friend Rhonda [...]

      Nancy Clancy is a character that I like for a lot of reasons, and am indifferent to for several others. I can't stand bratty kids in children's books, and Nancy is anything but. She loves big words and is 100 percent positive that writing at a desk rather than at a play table gave her more inspired ideas. (a sentiment 3rd-grade-me can totally relate to). When sleuthing out clues to solve a mystery, she always has her pink trench coat and rhinestone covered magnifying glass handy (again, me-minus [...]
