For Nancy, there's no such thing as too, too much; she loves her frilly bedroom, her lace-trimmed socks, and her pen with a plume. Nancy teaches her family how to be fancy, too. Then following Nancy's lead, the fancied-up family heads for a festive night out (at the local pizzeria). A messy food mishap puts a damper on Nancy's joy, but her supportive family and the “I love you” at bedtime smoothes everything out.
- “‘Fancy Nancy’ has done really well — the whole series,” said Merrick Smith, owner of Piccolo Mondo Toys

- “All the ‘Fancy Nancy’ titles have sold for me,” Jeanette Lauture, owner of Aunt Jean’s Toys & Treats

This book is the last in “A Series of Unfortunate Events,” and even if the reader braved the previous 12 volumes, they probably can't stand such unpleasantries as a fearsome storm, a suspicious beverage, a herd of wild sheep, an enormous birdcage … and a truly haunting secret about the Baudelaire parents.

In the heart of New York City, beneath a venerable old Broadway theater known as the Sovereign, there sits a long-forgotten architect’s model — the Sovereign’s miniature replica. In this secret space, a troupe of theater mice busily prepare to stage their own show, “Broadway Airs.” Rehearsals are in their usual state of chaos when suddenly the production is threatened by the imminent destruction of the theater and the disappearance of its star. As the clock ticks toward opening night, everyone is worried — will the Sovereign survive? How can they pull off the most important night in mouse theater without the star? Somehow, the show must go on! Theater fans young and old will delight in this humorous insider spoof — written and illustrated by a best-selling team (Julie Andrews Edwards and Emma Walton Hamilton) that has firsthand experience of this much-adored world.

With his long black curls, a shadowy family tree, and an affinity for pet spiders, James Matthew bears little resemblance to his starched-collar, blue-blooded peers at Eton. Dubbed King Jas., he stops at nothing to become the most notorious underclassman in the prestigious school's history. For James, sword fighting, falling in love with an Ottoman Sultana, and challenging the Queen of England are all in a day's skullduggery. But when he sets sail on a ship with a mysterious mission, King Jas.' dream of discovering a magical island quickly turns into an unimaginable nightmare. Written by J.V. Hart and illustrated by Brett Helquist, it’s 352 pages, hardcover.
