Just Plain Fancy is the story of a young Amish girl, Naomi who longs to have something fancy in her life. One day as she and her sister are searching the field for eggs, they stumble upon a peculiarlooking one. The girls slip the egg into the nest and when it hatches, they name the chick Fancy. As Fancy grows he certainly lives up to his name, and Naomi is frightened that the Amish community will shun the beautiful creature. During the frolic the next morning, Fancy unexpectedly escapes the henhouse, and runs toward the elders...At that moment, pleased with all the attention, Fancy ruffles his feathers and did for the guests what he had done for the girls in the henhouse the day before. Those who werent speechless were stunned! Just Plain Fancy is a charming story about learning to appreciate what God has provided, His handiwork, and the just plain fancy miracles of life.
