Synopsis: Nancy Clancy has everything she needs to be a super sleuth (that’s a fancy word for detective): She has a glamorous magnifying glass complete with rhinestones, a totally professional pink trench coat, and a sleuthing partner with awesome code-breaking skills — her best friend, Bree. Now all she needs is a good mystery to solve. But when crime strikes right in the middle of her classroom, will Nancy have what it takes to crack the case?
This book is a good easy chapter book for fans of the Fancy Nancy books that are growing out of the picture books and readers. Readers will probably appreciate that the older Nancy is still Fancy and still gives readers fancy names for things as well as a fun secret code to solve. Nancy is a big fan of Nancy Drew and her sleuthing skills, which could encourage kids to read the Nancy Drew series as well.
