    One thought on “Nancy Clancy, Secret Admirer”

    1. Judging by the previous reviews that I have read, I seem to be the only one here that disliked this book because of safety issues in this book. My 6 year old daughter and I have read lots of Nancy Clancy books together, this is the first one we didn't like. The story line is about Nancy and her BFF Bree, fixing up Nancy's 16 year guitar teacher (Andy) with their 16 year old babysitter (Annie). Nancy and Bree want to make a love match for Valentines Day. Let me start by explaining the safety issu [...]

    2. Nancy Clancy returns in an all new chapter book, and love is in the air! Nancy and her best friend, Bree, are learning about the human heart in science class, and they start wondering, what makes people fall in love? When Nancy's guitar teacher, Andy, and their favourite babysitter, Annie, break up with the people they had been dating, both Nancy and Bree decide to take on the role of matchmaker. But they soon discover that making them fall in love, even on Valentine's Day, isn't quite as easy a [...]

    3. Nancy is a very sweet little girl and a true romantic. She has a super teacher, Mr Dudeny - who encourages the children to expand their minds and encourages his learners to rather seek out the best in children by changing the exchange of valentine's day cards to appreciation cards. Each child must write an appreciation card for each child in the class. Lovely lesson! Any-ho, Nancy and Bree come up with an idea to get the music teacher and the babysitter together, as they feel that they would mak [...]

    4. scheduled: creativemadnessmama/blog/2Fancy Nancy: Nancy Clancy, Super Sleuth was a great read and a fantastic early chapter book so I couldn't wait to jump into Fancy Nancy: Nancy Clancy, Secret Admirer. However, Secret Admirer took us much longer to read because the interest just wasn't there. In the earliest reader books I'm not too interested in matchmaking and romance for my girls and they're were more into requesting The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe or Uncle Wiggily's Story Book and of [...]

    5. While I liked the first one better, this is another cute albeit frequently done story about setting up friends using the secret admirer method. Nancy and Bree are as charming as ever (although I wish the relationship with Grace was better). These are great books for those that are done with early chapter books but not necessarily ready for the longer chapter books. Of course recommended for fans of Fancy Nancy but also for those that aren't familiar with the picture books or early chapter books. [...]

    6. I enjoyed this Fancy Nancy or "Nancy Clancy" book much more than the first in the series. Nancy and Bree's personalities fit more with the wonderful picture book characters that I have grown to love. In this book Nancy and Bree concoct a plan to get Nancy's teenage guitar teacher and Bree's babysitter together. A great series for fans of the Fancy Nancy picture books and for young girls who are ready to start small chapter books.

    7. This is a nice story for the older kids, with more pages and fewer illustrations. Nancy and Bree decide to become matchmakers, but it isn't as easy as they think it will be. After all their hard work, will Annie and Dave get together?This post was written for the sponsor who provided the complimentary product for review in exchange for my honest opinions.

    8. My daughter and I had a great time reading this one together. I love that the Fancy Nancy books are aging with kids. This one's Valentines Day theme of love and matchmaking was particularly adorable. (Though I do wish we could have seen more of the Clara storyline, with her actually sitting at Nancy's lunch table).

    9. In this book, Nancy and Bree try to get two teenagers to fall in love by Friday for Valentine's day, but can they do it by Friday. Nancy and Bree think that they will be a perfect pair because both their names start with "A". Annie is Nancy's babysitter and Andy is Nancy's music teacher. Nancy finds out they already knew it each other. My favorite character is Annie because I like the name.

    10. This book was fun because Nancy and her friend Bree helped two teenagers fall in love, Annie and Andy. Lovebirds.

    11. So they were trying to make Annie and Andy fall in Love, and at the end they thought maybe they thought maybe they would fall in love later. I think it was 5 stars because I think I am more like Bree.

    12. I want to thank Harper Collins Children's for sending me an ARC of this cute story to read. Receiving this book for free has in no way influenced my review.I have to say that I don't read many children's books outside of what my kids and I read together so I wasn't sure what to expect with this book. I also wasn't sure what to be looking for as far as a review was concerned. I am lucky enough to have a child this age, although it's a boy so the challenges and though processes are a little differ [...]

    13. Nancy Clancy is a well known character in the author's picture book series that is called Fancy Nancy. In this second book of her early chapter book series, geared for 7-10 year olds, in grades 2-5, Nancy is growing up and facing new and different issues.Scheduled to go on sale, early in January, this book will be just in time for Valentine’s Day. In the first book of this series, Nancy investigates mysteries, and in this, the second, she wants to investigate love. I read an advanced copy of t [...]

    14. "Nancy Clancey: Secret Admirer" is an excellent choice for girly girls. The main character, Nancy, has a spunky attitude and a thirst for adventure. She demonstrates great character traits, including kindness, friendliness, and curiosity. In this book, Nancy and her best friend try to set her babysitter up with her guitar teacher. They go to crazy limits to try to make them fall in love. Girls in 3rd through 5th grade would especially enjoy these books. I would recommend them most to prissy girl [...]

    15. Nancy Clancy is back with an all new adventure. Valentine's Day is near and Nancy and Bree are making Appreciation cards for everyone in their class. This includes even making one for Grace, the girl in school that gets under Nancy's skin. While the girls work on their cards, Nancy is taking guitar lessons from high school student, Andy. Andy is a lot of fun and has recently broken up with his girlfriend. Later Nancy and Bree are with their favorite babysitter, Annie, another high school student [...]

    16. I have read a few of the Fancy Nancy books to my granddaughter; I was NOT a fan at all. And matter of fact stopped reading that series due to the little girl being to spoiled and the books just being full of various foreign words and not really being a story. So I hesitated to read this one. It was in the list of Valentine's Day books to read so I checked it out. It is a chapter book so to 'old' for my granddaughter so I sat and read it myself. I was very pleasantly surprised! It reminds me of B [...]

    17. A big thank you to Harper Collins for sending me this title to review. This has not influenced my opinion of the book. Valentines is just around the corner and our favorite little super sleuth is determined to find out about the mysteries of the heart. When Nancy and her best friend Bree decide to play matchmaker will love blossom or is creating your own love story harder than it seems?I adore Fancy Nancy and I have enjoyed adding the Nancy Clancy chapter series to the collection in our library. [...]

    19. The children and I have really enjoyed the Fancy Nancy books and everything that Jane O'Connor writes, so I'm a little sad to say this book was a miss for us. I started reading this out loud to the kids and they didn't even care enough to ask about hearing more of it. I finished it myself and returned it to the library without ever reading the end to the kids. In this book, Nancy and Bree get the idea to try and set up their teenage baby-sitter and guitar teacher by writing secret admirer notes. [...]

    20. This is the second book in the Nancy Clancy chapter book series by Jane O'Connor and Robin Preiss Glasser. We have read so many Fancy Nancy books that our girls have become quite familiar with the characters and they feel like old friends to us. Overall, this is an engaging and well-written story. It has a fun Valentine's Day theme and I like that Nancy learns a lesson. The sparse black and white illustrations complement the tale nicely. We are really looking forward to more chapter books featur [...]

    21. Fancy Nancya little older. This is the second (stand alone) book in the Nancy Clancy series. As a parent, I liked the first book better. Unlike the first Nancy Clancy book, Secret Admirer was a little too stereotypically girly. Having said that, it was still a good chapter book for little girls. Positives - the book is well written. Like the Fancy Nancy series, the book uses challenging words in appropriate ways and explains what the words mean. The characters are thoughtful, and there wasn't a [...]

    22. 4.5/5 starsI read this book with my 7 year old niece. When she was younger we used to love to read the Fancy Nancy picture books. So it's great that now that she is older there are Fancy Nancy chapter books for her to read.In this book Nancy and her best friend Bree decide to try their hand at matchmaking. This book is funny and lots of fun to read. Things we enjoyed: Nancy and Bree dressing up the babysitter, them making up stories about ducking under a porch when they got wet, and them peeking [...]

    23. Adult Reader Reaction: This is a sweet and not totally predictable story. Although it likely to get more attention in February, it is a fun read all year around. My only quibble is the gap between the target reader (still developing) and the word choice (somewhat sophisticated - particularly the French words). Readers who DON'T know Fancy Nancy from her picture books will probably like this more than those who are familiar with the shorter stories.Pros: This early chapter book has "girl appeal" [...]

    24. The second book in the series is just as cute as the first. This time, love in is the air, and Nancy and her best friend, Bree, decide they simply MUST play matchmaker, pairing the babysitter with the guitar teacher. How can they pull it off? By playing Secret Admirer, of course! Many hijinks and big words later, their plan is about to come to fruition (a fancy word for getting to the end). Will it work?For readers' advisors: early chapter book series aimed at grades 1-3. Fun for Fancy Nancy fan [...]

    25. Not great. Maybe I am just reading this for too-young of a girl, but I thought doing a romance-themed book for this age group was in questionable taste. The first book in the series seemed perfect for her, so I thought we were in the right demographic. I think if I'd been reading this with my older daughter (who would have absorbed more and asked more pointed questions), I would have discontinued the book and told her it was for older girls. I continued only because I was relying on the oblivion [...]

    26. My Review: Nancy Clancy makes her return in Book 2 of Nancy Clancy Secret Admirer. In this series, Nancy and Bree decided to play matchmaker after learning about the human heart in science class.When Nancy's guitar teacher Andy broke up with his girlfriend Margaret, Nancy and her best friend, Bree decided to set up him up with Bree’s babysitter Annie. Nancy and Bree will try their best to make them fall in love before Valentine's Day. This book fun and will appeal to young girls.Disclaimer: As [...]

    27. Nancy and Bree play matchmakers in this second Fancy Nancy chapter book. Their targets are Annie, the babysitter, and Andy, the guitar instructor. The girls scheme to bring the two teenagers together and are surprised to find that they weren't nearly as sneaky as they thought.Funny and sweet, I actually liked this book better than the first Fancy Nancy chapter book, but I think that opinion is purely based on the storylines. Fans of the Fancy Nancy chapter books will notice the use of vocabulary [...]

    28. This series is cute and worth checking out. I have to give a higher rating to the first book over this one (it was really good). The first one contained a great sleuth type mysteryis book leans heavily on a valentines-love is in the air-get people to fall in love theme with very little sleuthing or mystery. I think for the age group it is just a bit too mushy gushy for my tastes. That being said the romance was tame and the ending was appropriate. We will definitely be on the look out for more i [...]
