Mercy's appetite has got her into trouble again. When Eugenia Lincoln's pansies go missing, Animal Control Officer Francine Poulet arrives on the scene.

The porcine wonder’s on the lam in this tongue-in-snout adventure!
This hilarious storybook series features a “Porcine Wonder” named Mercy Watson. Mercy is much more intelligent than the average pig. Mr. And Mrs. Watson treat her just about as well as a child of their own! She sleeps in a bed in her own bedroom, goes on Saturday drives with Mr. Watson, and even joins the family at the table for dinner! Mercy, though intelligent, always seems to find herself wrapped up in adventure and mischief. One thing’s for sure, she has a serious love for buttered toast! This series, by Kate DiCamillo (Author of Newberry Medal winners, The Tale of Despereaux and Flora & Ulysses) is perfect for bedtime stories or gathering around the fire for a read-aloud. Each book is filled with eye-catching, full-color illustrations by Chris Van Dusen. The print is large, which is great for young readers or group readings. Each book has approximately 70 pages, pb. ~ Brianna
