Illustrated by Robin Glasser.
Nancy is over the moon when her family decide to get a dog. She dreams of having a papillon - a small‚ delicate‚ fluffy dog - by her side. This will be the ultimate accessory!
But her family have other ideas. They want a plain dog. How unglamorous!
With Fancy Nancy's trademark humour and warmth‚ Nancy discovers that true fanciness does not depend simply on appearance but more on a genuine joie de vivre‚ which is a very fancy phrase for having lots of fun!
