Review: Fancy Nancy and the Fabulous Fashion Boutique

Nancy’s sister is having a birthday celebration, so being the lovely sister that she is, she buys her the perfect gift!

Ooh la la! As she shops Nancy finds a lace fan that she must have for herself – but Nancy has spent all her money on the gift for her sister.
This is the beginning of a wonderful idea – and the founding of the fabulous fashion boutique! There are a variety of fashions - tutus, boas, eyewear, hats, shoes, jewellery and the customers come piling in (and the money piling up).
Unfortunately, Nancy’s sister finds something that she wants in the boutique … but she needs the money for her lovely lace fan! Nancy must make the decision between sisterly love and buying herself something special.

I loved this book for the colourful, detailed illustrations, and Nancy who is a lovable character, who demonstrates the meaning of sisterly love! I look forward to reading more about Nancy in this wonderful series.

A delightful book for the budding fashionista or mini entrepreneur!
