But in all the excitement disaster strikes and Fancy Nancy's most special decoration gets broken! What will go on the top of the tree w? Grandpa steps in just in time and with his help and a LOT of glitter, ribbons and tinsel, Fancy Nancy manages to create a very fancy alternative!
Jane O'Connor has always had a secret fondness for froufrou. An editor at a major publishing house, she has written more than thirty books for children. She lives with her family in the glamour capital of the world - New York City. Robin Preiss Glasser, who habitually sports glasses and jeans, discovered her inner Nancy while illustrating this book. Wearing lace-trimmed socks helps me draw better, she says. She has illustrated many books and lives in Southern California with her family and tiara collection.
