    New York Times Book Review

    " This is an adorable mystery for the elementary age crowd about picture book hero Fancy Nancy, who has grown up a few grades and is ready to emulate Nancy Drew. This would actually be a great segue into the Nancy Drew books, or at least the Clue Crew series. I also loved how Nancy still likes to use (and define!) fancy words. "
