    Fancy Nancy is less than thrilled when vacation arrives but her best friend Bree takes off for a family vacation to New York City. Her mother comforts her with a pack of glitter markers, and our favorite fancy girl decides to turn her backyard clubhouse into an art studio. Over the course of the week she creates pieces in the style of Degas, Monet, Matisse and Pollock. When Bree finally returns, complete with sketches she did in New York, the two girls and their friend Lionel have an art show in their back yard...The fourth smaller-sized Fancy Nancy picture-book that I have read - the others being Fancy Nancy: Explorer Extraordinaire!, Fancy Nancy: Poet Extraordinaire and Fancy Nancy: Ooh La La! It's Beauty Day - this charming title is partly fictional and partly non-fictional, pairing the story of Nancy's vacation art experiences with information about real artists, and reproductions of their works. Unlike some of the earlier titles in this format, there was no afterword with further information, which was something of a disappointment. Still, the end result was a delight, both from a narrative and an illustrative standpoint. I continue to find this series engaging, with books that are both entertaining and informative. Recommended to all Fancy Nancy fans, and to young would-be artists.

    This is probably a 3.5 star book. I liked it better than some of the other books about Nancy that have come out lately, but it doesn't hold the charm of the first three either.

    Nice little book that includes BIG words and a few famous artworks.

    This book is part of the Fancy Nancy Series, and is about Nancy as she learns to cope with the absence of her best friend over her spring vacation from school. Nancy's mom decides to buy Nancy fun art supplies to keep Nancy occupied, and Nancy quickly becomes inspired and develops a love for art! This fun story is perfect for little girls who are trying to find the artist in them, and who love reading about Nancy trying to be fancy in all that she does!

    I was so happy to receive this book from LT's Early Reviewers program. Thank you! I have always loved Fancy Nancy and this book is no disappointment! I am so happy the authors chose this artist theme as we are an artistic family. My 7 year old daughter loved this book as she has loved all the others. Winner!

    I thought this book would be perfect for my aspiring artist daughter, but she and I were both unimpressed by the book. There really was no story--just a list of art projects that Nancy tried. I really miss the originality and personality of the first few books. Also, my daughter wanted to know what happened with Bree--the story starts out with Nancy missing her friend but then the friend theme is totally dropped and it ends with her happy about getting a manicure. There's no story arc at all. I'd recommend this book only for extreme Fancy Nancy fans who like anything about her whether there is a story or not.The illustrations are the best part of this book.
