Fancy Nancy: Apples Galore! by Jane O'Connor - ADVISABLE

O’Connor, Jane  Fancy Nancy: Apples Galore!  Illustrated by Robin Preiss Glasser and Ted Enik  Harper, 2013.  $16.99  EARLY READER  Content: G.  

Nancy’s class goes to an apple orchard for a field trip.  Her partner is Lionel, and he is a prankster.  Because he pranks so much, when he finally does get himself in a precarious situation and actually needs help nobody believes him.  Nancy helps him though and she ends up getting some Gala apples like her dad loves.  

This is a typical Fancy Nancy in the fact that it has adorable illustrations and Nancy is a good girl who likes to help others, but Lionel is a bit naughty and frustrating.  He doesn’t listen to the teacher and he has to suffer the consequences.  This is an easy reader with around four short sentences per page layout.
