But what happens when she can't think of a good idea?
Complete with Nancy's very own poetry anthology, Fancy Nancy: Poet Extraordinaire shows how a true love of words can be tres fancy. Ooh la la And with a little inspiration, which is fancy for something that helps you get good ideas, Fancy Nancy just might be a Poet Extraordinaire after all.
