Fancy Nancy Halloween or Bust by Jane O'Connor & Robin Preiss Glasser

No one knows Fancy like Nancy . . .
. . . and no one knows Halloween like Nancy!

And no one loves Halloween like my daughter. She loves dressing up and of course candy! 

We really love the Fancy Nancy books and this one was extra special because it comes with 30 "fabulous" stickers.

In this book Fancy Nancy is dressing up as grapes for a Halloween Party. She even smells "grape-y" (grape bubble bath) but when the balloons on her costume pop she has a "disastrous" moment which only the readers can fix by using the stickers included to create a new costume for her.

Unfortunately, Goddess has zero patience and decided to use the stickers on a cute drawing for her Abuela. It was only when I got to the end of the book the other day that she realized why they had been included. She was upset until I told her to create an outfit using markers and colored pencils.

Here is her costume creation!

We highly suggest all the Fancy Nancy books and thank Harper Collins for forwarding them to us.
