Mercy Watson to the Rescue #1
To Mr. and Mrs. Watson, Mercy is not just a pig — she's a porcine wonder. And to the portly and good-natured Mercy, the Watsons are an excellent source of buttered toast, not to mention that buttery-toasty feeling she gets when she snuggles into bed with them. This is not, however, so good for the Watsons' bed. BOOM! CRACK! As the bed and its occupants slowly sink through the floor, Mercy escapes in a flash – "to alert the fire department," her owners assure themselves. But could Mercy possibly have another emergency in mind — like a sudden craving for their neighbors' sugar cookies? Welcome to the wry and endearing world of Mercy Watson — an ebullient character for early chapter-book readers in a series that's destined to be a classic.
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
