Love the girly cover and Nancy's pink trench coat. Still, she and Bree are all business when it comes to solving the mysteries they encounter. They even have their own secret code. The Nancy Drew references are spot on and link generations of mystery readers together. O'Connor gives the reader a hint or two to help them solve the mystery along with Nancy Clancy. A strong series for chapter book readers!

This book was fun and engaging. The way Nancy tackled each of the mysteries she faced was ultimately reasonable, though first there was some degree of wild speculation. As with most Fancy Nancy/Nancy Clancy books, the illustrations were excellent! And the resolution to each of the mysteries emphasized forgiveness, compassion, patience, honesty, and refraining from gossip.

Nancy Clancy is the best library book for your children to read. If they do not know how to read and they do not know what chapters are, you will have to explain what chapters are. You can teach them how to read or if they're not into that, you can read it to them.

I like this book because it is very good and it has good pictures. I was excited at the end. I like when she's at school because she has a good teacher.

First, the good things about this book. It is perfect for an early chapter book for grades 2-5 as advertized. There is something for each of those grades in this book. Nancy is a fun loving character who loves sleuthing, Nancy Drew, and big words. She is very active and has lots of friends. She is a positive role model in that she is not mean to others even when they have done bad things. Her upbeat attitude is contagious. The adults also had good attitudes. I really liked that. The illustrations are also beautiful and interesting. For older readers the writing style lends itself for a very quick read even though it is over 100 pages.

One thing that drove me crazy while reading this book is when Nancy would jump from one mystery to another. Everywhere she looked there was another mystery. I would have liked this book to focus on one mystery throughout the book. I would say this book was more about Nancy the mystery lover rather than Nancy, the detective. Nancy also used A LOT of big words. This is okay for the better readers or older readers, but not the beginning readers. This book could be frustrating for them.

This is the first book in the Nancy Clancy series and I look forward to reading the next.

This book will be released in late April and is the next step for all those kids who loved Fancy Nancy. She's got a bit older and is having some adventures at school. She loves Nancy Drew and wants to prove her detective skills, but lacks a mystery. That wish leads to more than one mystery and she finds that listening, observing, and using her powers of deduction go a long way. Her partner in sleuthing is her best friend Bree, and she plays a great older sister to JoJo. From the dress (a pink trenchcoat) to the methodology, Nancy soon has the detective work down pat.
