Fancy Nancy
Time for another blog giveaway, and you’re going to love this one – a set of “Fancy Nancy” books, starting with Jane O’Connor’s newest, “Fancy Nancy: Bonjour, Butterfly,” and an I-Can-Read book. Nancy, for those of you who’ve not yet discovered O’Connor’s fanciful creation, is a tiara-clad, sparkly shoed youngster who believes fancier is always better. How that translates into family relationships, trips to the museum and puppies, er, excuse us, Papillon, unfolds in the pages of these whimsically illustrated books. You might need a tiara yourself.

So click “comments,” answer the question (Melvyn’s adorable “Ladies and Jellyspoons” riff won him a Wiggles DVD last week), and we’ll draw a winner Sunday night. Here’s the question: who’s your favorite kid lit heroine? (We were always kind of partial to Harriet of spy fame, but Fancy Nancy? Ooo la la.)

    Meg Murry from Wrinkle in Time. She was a real heroine, scared but she did what it took! She did not have enough faith in herself but when it counted she got the job done! I love those books!!

    It is apparently Amelia Bedelia!

  13. Cindi Says:

    Happy Thursday! There are so many heroines from kid literature that I like! Each has their own personality and such. I will have to go with “Madeline!” She was always getting reprimanded, but she was just curious and adventuresome. Her and her “je ne sais quoi.” Please enter me in your delightful contest drawing. Thanks very much…..Cindi

    My daughter’s heroine is actually fancy nancy…we have the first two books in the series and read them ALL the time. She loves the fact that she is fancier than mommy (just like fancy nancy).MY son’s favorite is Curious George-although he gets into trouble quite often…

  15. Alexia Says:

    My favorite when I was a child was Ramona Quimby and Amelia Bedelia.

    I read one of the Fancy Nancy books awhile ago and loved it! I have two boys, but I think they would love Fancy Nancy just as much!

  16. Susan Chester Says:

    My favorite was Anne from Anne of Green Gables. Also Laura from the Little House series. I haven’t heard of Fancy Nancy but she sounds a lot like my niece who believes in rhinestones and the more the better.

  17. Michele Says:

    Mine was definitely Laura from Little House on the Prairie.

  18. Ann Says:

    Charlotte from Charlotte’s web is our favorite. Oh, I hope I win this for my daughter, she would be sooo happy!!

  19. Naomi Says:

    Pippi Longstocking! Roo would love Fancy Nancy, she’s pretty fancy herself.
