Fancy Nancy

Fancy Nancy: Nancy Clancy, Secret of the Silver Key. Written by Jane O’Connor, illusrtrated by Robin Preiss Glasser

About the Book: Nancy and her best friend, Bree, must go back in time to solve their latest mystery. While Nancy’s class learns about time capsules in school, another relic from the past pops up in the present. Nancy buys an old desk at a tag sale and soon finds out that someone left behind a key. In the perfect follow-up to Nancy Clancy, Super Sleuth; Nancy Clancy, Secret Admirer; and Nancy Clancy Sees the Future, Nancy and Bree set out to unlock the secret of the silver key in the hopes of finding some treasure along the way. But unlocking the mystery soon proves to be more difficult than they had thought, and when the answer isn’t what they had expected, Nancy and Bree learn there are some things that remain timeless forever.


My Review: Nancy Clancy was excited to be attending the estate sale. As estates were like mansions full of big and fancy furniture for sale. Nancy was looking for a desk to do her homework on. She came across a small wooden desk with a top that rolled up and down. In one of the drawers, she came across a silver key. A key to a secret compartment, when opened she found anther key. Now Nancy and her friend Bree must find out who the key belongs to and what it opens. This book is full of fun and will appeal to young girls.

  8. I think that it is great to have a book about mystery but it is even better that the main characters are girls. Far to often my students we are girls see mystery books as being for boys because rarely this is what the majority of mystery books offer. I would love to offer this book in my classroom library for my students. Thanks for the review and a new insight into a new series I could use for my students.

  9. What a great book to use as a read aloud, having students predict, or write the next chapter, and share.

  10. This looks like a great book for my niece and I. We have started some read aloud quality time on my visits. This seems like it would be a great addition to that time.
