It's official: I prefer the I Can Read! books in this series to the regular picture books.

Fancy Nancy: Oodles of Kittens is a story about the result of irresponsible pet ownership. I really hoped that the stray cat would be spayed. How hard would it have been to write: "Mrs. Devine got Maj spayed. That's a fancy word that means Maj can't have any more kittens"? But, no, the stray cat stays with the woman who just screams "crazy cat lady", so you know that feline will probably be knocked up again

This is a sweet and fun addition for Fancy Nancy fans. My five year old daughter is slightly addicted to the Fancy Nancy stories right now, and she loved how this book focused on Nancy’s pet dog Frenchy and her new kitten, Sequin.

This is the first Fancy Nancy book I've read. It was cute. I liked the illustrations, but more so, I liked the use of the bigger words and the explanations of those words. I do feel like this is a series geared toward girls.

Review originally published on my blog, Nine Pages .

This is a good story for families with new siblings or new pets. Nancy and Bree find a mother cat—a queen—with new kittens. Mrs. DeVine takes the family in, and Nancy and Bree keep a close eye on the young kittens. Bree and Nancy keep Sequin and Rhinestone after the other kittens have found homes. Frenchy is jealous and feeling ignored as Nancy pampers Sequin with lots of attention. Frenchy is an excellent stand-in for an older sibling where

Fancy Nancy returns in this latest picture-book devoted to her many adventures, this time discovering a litter of kittens while having a fancy tea-party with her best friend Bree, and their neighbor, Mrs. DeVine. Delighted with these new feline friends, the girls watch over them as they grow, and eventually each take one home. Nancy is caught up in caring for Sequin, as she names her new pet, and doesn't understand why Frenchy, her pet poodle, doesn't seem happy. Once she discovers that there is ...more

I love how although this book talks about the joy of having a kitten, it also talks about jealousy and how to help others when they are feeling jealous.

**What pets did you have as a child? Did you have a favorite? What pets did you want as a child? As an adult, do you have that pet now? How many children in your family growing up? Where do you fall in the birth order? Do you remember how you felt when a younger sibling was born? When have you felt jealous? Did you resolve the feelings yourself

This is my first Fancy Nancy book and I really enjoyed it. I like how this develops vocabulary in a fun way by telling all the “fancy” words. This book tells information about kittens and has a theme of other sibling jealousy when a younger sibling is introduced in the family. Actually, my only real complaint with the book is that it crams a lot of themes and plot into one picture book. The missing kitten part at the end could have been omitted.

I feel like a hypocrite for liking this book in spite of its pinkness, when I just gave another book a 3 star review for being too pink, but... this is Fancy Nancy, what are ya gonna do, eh? I love how this series is so good at teaching vocabulary throughout the story. Plus, kittens! I didn't know a new cat mother is called a queen! I liked this book. I may have to try it at storytime.

This story is about Nancy and her friend Bree, they find a stray cat and her kittens and help take care of them. This book introduces children to new vocabulary words and also gives an explanation of what each word being used in the story. Nancy also has to learn what the word jealous means and share her time between her new kitten and her older puppy.

Fancy Nancy is back to ring in the new year with the surprise arrival of kittens. A good take on sibling rivalry when the new house pet clashes with the existing one. But if anyone could solve this kind of problem, it's the girl who likes to introduce readers to fancy words!

This is most likely my favorite Fancy Nancy book ever. Cats and kittens and teaching the reader the importance of patience and love.

This was our first "Fancy Nancy" book and we enjoyed it very much! Lots of animals, love, and fanciness. My only hangup was that the point of the story seemed to keep changing.

I adore the sparkles and glitter in Fancy Nancy books; however, they are always just this much short of being too twee (a word that means nauseatingly cute). This book is no exception.

A cute Fancy Nancy book about taking care of kittens.
Man, Fancy Nancy is really something. I feel like I would be itchy with all of those accessories. This book is decently cute though.

Re-read April 2018: I checked this out from the library again because I love kittens!

Read March 2018: I picked this from the library all day when I was picking ALL the new books from the shelves. Mama read it to me and my stepbrother last night and I loved it! I loved the kittens and I love learning new words - especially "ooh la la"!

I don't have much to say except I hate the font. It's cute, but the font was annoying.
