Fancy Nancy is a 2005 children's picture book written by Jane O'Connor and illustrated by Robin Preiss Glasser. It is the first book in the Fancy Nancy series, with 400,000 copies in print since December 2005 and spent nearly 100 weeks on the New York Times Best Seller list. 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 17 languages, including Hungarian and Hebrew. Fancy Nancy is a wild, young girl with a larger than life personality, who adores all things fancy. In Nancy's opinion, her family is ordinary and dresses rather plainly, so Nancy decides to hold a class in the art of fanciness for her family.
