Nancy thinks butterflies are simply exquisite. And that is why she can't wait for her friend Bree's Butterfly Birthday. It's going to be the fanciest birthday party ever!

In her "Fancy Nancy" books, Jane O'Connor created a world she was very familiar with as a little girl. When company arrived at her home, O'Connor would throw on a tutu, a cape and her mother's high heels, looking "appropriately elegant" to greet her guests.
