Publisher Description

Every porcine wonder was once a piglet! Celebrate the joy of a new arrival with this endearing picture-book prequel to the New York Times best-selling Mercy Watson series. Mr. Watson and Mrs. Watson live ordinary lives. Sometimes their lives feel a bit too ordinary. Sometimes they wish something different would happen. And one day it does, when someone unpredictable finds her way to their front door. In a delightful origin story for the star of the Mercy Watson series, a tiny piglet brings love (and chaos) to Deckawoo Drive--and the Watsons' lives will never be the same.

Quotes

  • “To paraphrase an immortal spider, Mercy is some pig…Younger siblings of the Mercy chapter-book lovers will find their way into the series with this first look, written just for them.”

    - Kirkus Reviews
  • “Established fans will find plenty to appreciate here, while newcomers will be charmed, making this a natural stepping stone to the original series.”

    - Publishers Weekly
  • “The popular early-reader series about Mercy the pig gets an origin story.”

    - Booklist
  • “Cheerful music starts off this audiobook prequel introducing pre-chapter-book listeners to the porcine wonder Mercy Watson. Narrator Mark Bramhall conveys the gentle humor and charm of the sweet story, creating distinct voices for Mr. and Mrs. Watson and kind, sensitive Baby Lincoln and an especially funny nasal voice to express the disapproval of prim Eugenie. Younger siblings of Mercy’s chapter book fans will be thrilled to have their own story and eager to hear the rest of the series.”
