Description

Te presentamos a Nancy, quien cree que mas, siempre, es mejor cuando se trata de ser elegante. Ella no se pierde un detalle, desde la punta de su corona hasta la brillantina de sus zapatos, y esta decidida a ensenar a su familia a convertirse en la misma estampa de la elegancia.

La manera en que Nancy transforma a sus padres y a su hermanita para salir una noche juntos da lugar a una historia divertida y enternecedora, que les encantara a todas aquellas lectoras que no sonarian con salir de casa sin emperifollarse de la cabeza a los pies.
