You may recall from a past post, that

six-year-old Audrey Presby, was in the running to become part of the popular ‘Fancy Nancy’ book series about confident young girls who love to dress up.

Thanks to your votes, the adorable California girl, who has Down syndrome and Juvenile Idiopathic Arthritis ended up #17 out of more than 600 entries in the Fancy Nancy Fantastic Photo Contest and is still in the running for this gig. A panel from HarperCollins, publishers of the series, will select the winner.

Recently, Fancy Audrey got to spend time with the books’ illustrator, Robin Preiss Glasser. Read about that here.

How cool would it be to have a child with special needs included in this traditional and popular fancy girl book series? Very cool indeed.
