Fancy Nancy and the Posh Puppy by Jane O'Connor


Fancy Nancy and the Posh Puppy by Jane O'Connor

Fancy Nancy is back! And this time she wants to be fancier than ever! Nancy is over the moon when her family decide to get a dog. She dreams of having a papillon - a small, delicate, fluffy dog - by her side. This will be the ultimate accessory! But her family have other ideas. They want a plain dog. How unglamorous! With Fancy Nancy's trademark humour and warmth, Nancy discovers that true fanciness does not depend simply on appearance but more on a genuine joie de vivre, which is a very fancy phrase for having lots of fun!


It's innocent and magical and just the book you want your little girl to read. Utterly charming Mum reviewing Fancy Nancy I will be buying more copies of this book for friends daughters would love [it]! Mum reviewing Fancy Nancy
