Ooo-la-la! Is your favorite color fuchsia? Do you like to write with a pen that has a plume? Even if the answer to these questions is no, Dr. Toughlove thinks you will enjoy the book “Fancy Nancy,” written by Jane O’Connor and illustrated by Robin Preiss Glasser. The team of O’Connor and Preiss Glasser have combined to write over 100 titles and their “Fancy Nancy” books have consistently been on the New York Times best seller list.
