Fancy Nancy celebrates 10 years of being spectacular! (That's a fancy word for amazing!)
Every design aspect of Fancy Nancy is considered for every glittery cover. Color, placement, balance and even the fonts are considered--not only do they look fancy, but they have fancy names like Plaza, Fontesque, and Tapioca.
The book spent nearly 100 weeks on the New York Times Best Seller list, launching a series that now numbers more than 60 books, selling 27 million volumes. Fancy Nancy has been on Publishers Weekly’s bestseller list for picture books, was a Children’s Book-of-the-Month Club selection and a Junior Library Guild Selection. It also won a "Borders 2006 Original Voices" award and has been translated into 18 languages, including Hungarian and Hebrew.
The Children's Book Council named Robin Preiss-Glasser 2013 Illustrator of the Year for Fancy Nancy and the Mermaid Ballet.
