Readers of Fancy Nancy will love the laugh-out-loud classroom antics and story of friendship.

Nellie Sue is a true cowgirl with an imagination the size of Texas, and she is looking forward to a great school year. But when new girl Maya sits next to her best friend, Anna, and she finds her new desk is sandwiched between the rough and wild J-Twins, and a mysterious cow picture lands on her desk, Nellie Sue realizes that this day is NOT going her way.  Can this trusty cowgirl dust herself off and use her high-flying spirit to turn the day around and make a brand-new friend?
