Join Fancy Nancy in a fabulous 8x8 storybook adventure, complete with fancy stickers!
Fancy Nancy can’t wait for Easter. And this year, JoJo’s class pet, Nibbles the bunny, is staying at the Clancys’ house for the weekend. But when Bree and Freddy come over to begin an Easter egg hunt, Nibbles goes missing! It’s up to Nancy to find her before anyone notices she’s gone.
From Jane O’Connor, author of the bestselling Fancy Nancy series, comes the perfect springtime read.

Jane O’Connor is an editor at a major publishing house and has written more than seventy books for children, including the New York Times bestselling Fancy Nancy series, which is comprised of over 50 titles so far. She resides (that’s a fancy word for lives) in Manhattan with her husband, Jim. Her two grown sons have fled New York, however, and are both living in Los Angeles.

Robin Preiss Glasser wore tiaras and tutus when she danced as a soloist with the Pennsylvania Ballet. Now she happily spends her days in jeans, drawing. She has illustrated many acclaimed picture books, including the now classic and beloved Fancy Nancy series. In 2013, she won the Children’s Choice Award for Best Illustrator of the Year for Fancy Nancy and the Mermaid Ballet. Robin lives in Southern California with her husband, Bob, and two children, Sasha and Ben.

Fancy Nancy stories are among my most favorite children's books. Each Fancy Nancy story teaches a lesson to children and shows them the right way to be respectful and good. 

Fancy Nancy and the Missing Easter Bunny is filled with bright, colorful illustrations that really engage readers and will keep children attentive and interested in the story. 

One of my favorite parts about Fancy Nancy stories is that the author uses each story to introduce children to the French language with  easy to understand words that children will be able to grasp and remember. The stories also teach kids right from wrong and use different situations to show kids the right choices to make. 

"Ooh la la! Look at my eggs! 
They are tres magnifique. 
(That's French for very magnificent!)"

The characters in Fancy Nancy stories are bright and fun and drawn to reflect happiness and cheer. 

I love how in Fancy Nancy and the Missing Easter Bunny, Nancy's friends realize that Nancy was busy trying to find the missing bunny and did not get to hunt eggs like everyone her friends come together to make sure Nancy gets a chance to hide eggs as well. This shows kids the right way to treat people and teaches friendship and respect. 

I also like that the author includes a page full of stickers which helps kids to be able to interact within the story and they will love the cute stickers! Especially the Easter bunny sticker! :)
