Fancy Nancy Splendiferous Christmas by Jane O'Connor

Fancy Nancy is back in this sparkly festive new story from Jane O'Connor and Robin Preiss Glasser. Only one word describes how magnificent, joyous, and sparkly Christmas is...Splendiferous! It's nearly Christmas Day - the most glittery, sparkly and fabulous time of the year and Fancy Nancy can hardly contain her excitement! There's so much she has to do leading up to the big day! Decorating the house from top to toe, baking Christmas cookies, wrapping all her presents in fancy paper and making Christmas cards for all her family...Choosing and decorating the Christmas tree is top of Fancy Nancy's list and it has to look just perfect! 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 now? 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!
