Nancy Clancy Seeks a Fortune is the 7th book the in Fancy Nancy chapter books series.

When my older niece was younger she used to love the Fancy Nancy books. Then when she was 6 Jane O'Connor started writing the Nancy Clancy chapter books. My niece was so happy. Now that she is 10 she is probably a bit old for these books (I would say 7-8 would be the ideal age to read these). However, we still always read them together.

As an adult I enjoy Fancy Nancy. The books teach kids new words that they

I really enjoyed this book! It's the same formula as the other Nancy Clancy books, but it was informative and fun. Nancy's school class is learning about the California Gold Rush. The story includes interesting facts about that event. The idea of gold sets the students off to make money of their own. Some of the challenges and perks of being an entrepreneur are highlighted as well. In the end, Nancy learns that some things are better than money. The illustrations are delightful as well.

This is a book about a young girl named Nancy. After learning about the Gold Rush, she and her friends want to get rich too. In this book she and her classmates try out all kinds of ways to make money, like selling home made skin cream, making little crowns, lasso lessons, and a biscuit stand. They even try seeing if their old stuff would be worth any money. But they realize that running a business is much harder than they expected.

I thought this was a pretty good book. It's an easy read with a

I have read some Fancy Nancys in the past because it seems as if every little girl is in love with those books. I think it's great that the author has made a series for older children who might still want to read about Nancy. One of the aspects I like about this book was how the author addressed difficult words by building definitions into the story.

It was OK except for the fact that it wasn't really a good story line.

My six-year-old daughter is huge into Nancy Clancy at the moment so we're working our way through the series. I enjoy reading them to her but this one doesn't rank among the best.

Cute story, and I enjoyed the lessons that money isn't everything. I was disappointed by a use of the Lord's name in an incorrect way. I would have rated it better if it hadn't been for that.

It seems everyone in class has a successful money-making venture on their hands, except Nancy and Bree. But the entrepreneurial spirit has taken hold, and they have a couple ideas to try. Will they be successful with homemade skin cream or hair accessories? Will they learn in the end that some things are more important than money?

This is a very good series. What O'Connor started with Fancy Nancy is continuing in a timely, character-building way. A pleasure to read. Book #7, AR: 4.1

Since the publication of Fancy Nancy, Jane O'Connor's closet now boasts so many boas, tiaras, and sparkly ensembles that sometimes friends do not recognize her on the street. She still resides (that's a fancy word for lives) in New York City with her family and their canine companion, Arrow. --from the publisher's website
