I'm sorry you were disappointed with Fancy Nancy. We don't own that book, but "Splat the Cat" Read & Play is worth every penny. It has tons of interactive activities. You can comb his hair (my kids' favorite), draw on the chalkboard at school, help sprinkle confetti, & much more. Every page has something that is interactive. Splat is such a lovable cat, the story is great & the activities make it even more so. It is the one story we have on our nook color that gets requested almost every night between my kids.
Splat the Cat is really good. We also like Jamberry -it is colorful and has nice animation on each page, and different activities.
