Mercy's in the pink for her fourth adventure!

When the Watsons decide to zip their porcine wonder into a formfitting princess dress for Halloween, complete with a tiara, they are certain that Mercy will be beautiful beyond compare. Mercy is equally certain she likes the sound of trick-or-TREATING and can picture those piles of buttered toast already. As for the Lincoln Sisters next door, how could they know that their cat would get into the act and lead them all on a Halloween parade of hysterical proportions?

Kate DiCamillo's beguiling pig is back in a tale full of treats, tricky turns, hijinks, and high humor. Download and start listening now!

    " She dress like a princess for Halloween to get treats. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Dolly | 2/10/2014

    " We've read a few Mercy Watson books and we've really enjoyed them. They are silly, easy to read, and have fun pictures. This one, with a Halloween theme, is funny and of course, ends up with everyone having some toast with a great deal of butter. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Kaethe | 1/30/2014

    " Mercy Watson is my kind of pig. And before the first book, I had no idea I had a kind of pig (Charlotte's Web is fine and all, but I wasn't that impressed with Wilbur). "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Hannah | 1/29/2014

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Vivian | 1/12/2014

    " Love, love, love the Mercy Watson books! Adults are going to enjoy these as much as their children. They are the perfect transition from Easy Reader to chapter books -- large print, full color illustrations, and great stories. I recommend them all the time. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Karen and Sarah Z | 1/9/2014

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Danis | 9/6/2013

    " I loved the illustrations, but the story line irritated me because it was so silly and didn't make sense! I would have this in my library, though, because I think children would really enjoy the illustrations. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Elfiegirl | 6/4/2013

    " This book was obviously not read at the time where little pigs seemed "cuuuuuuute!" and dressing them in tutus seemed roll-on-the-floor funny. It was a sweet book, but for a more juvenile crowd, and i appreciate that. I, however, LOVE Kate Dicamillo...... "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Cindy Beverly | 5/29/2013

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Lindsay | 8/14/2011

    " Hilarious series that my kids want to read over & over. Great for a starter for chapter books as there aren't too many sentences on a single page and plenty of bright illustrations. Fun/ adventurous story line. I wish there were more of these! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Mandy | 7/6/2011

    " Mercy Watson dresses up for Halloween because she wants treats. But trying to get treats leads to a chase. And there is always the fire department when Mercy is involved! You and your children will enjoy this silly tale of another adventure with Mercy the pig. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Cami | 5/15/2011

    " Love the characters in these concise tales. "

    There neighbor does not like the pig but her sister does!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Tara | 4/21/2011

    " Great book! I feel that this book really would capture the attention of all readers. It caught mine! Mercy catches a theif trying to steal their toaster. Mercy can't let that happen because without a toaster you can't have toast. This book was funny and would be great for third grade. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Elizabeth | 9/12/2010

    " mercy watson wakes up in the middle of the night only to find a robber in the kitchen. she quickly falls asleep right in the robber's path! from that point forward, chaos ensues! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Evan | 2/6/2010

    " I like it. I liked the part where the fire department and the police came. It was so awesome! I like Mercy because she always does something nice for Mr. and Mrs. Watson. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 nicole | 9/19/2009

    " I love this series, and this book in particular, where Mercy's love and nose for toast leads her to stop a bandit from raiding the house. What I love best about these books, characters and story aside, is Chris Van Dusen's illustration. Great light, great perspective. Dude's awesome. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Cherie | 8/30/2009

    " Leroy Ninker steals from Mercy's owner and Mercy goes to sleep in front of the door. Leroy sits on her and she starts running and bucks him off and sits on him. It's very funny. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Laura | 8/13/2009

    " Mercy Watson is a pig who acts like a person. It is great for a late first grade or second grade reader who is ready to start transitioning to beginning reader chapter books. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Dolly | 5/2/2009

    " This is a fun book to read, but very silly. It's a chapter book, but there are lots of pictures and the chapters are very short, so it's perfect for beginning readers or for reading aloud to younger children. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Cori | 2/3/2009

    " I am sad to say I didn't love this one as much as the others. Might have something to do with the 45 minutes discussion I had with my girls about the little boy stealing all of the Watson's stuff.

    I-YI-YI "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Jennifer | 1/4/2009

    " This was my first Mercy Watson book and it got me hooked! Between, Leroy and the The Lincoln Sisters I was rolling in laughter! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Laura | 11/25/2008

    " The 3rd installment in the delightful tale of a pig named Mercy who loves toast. Georgia loves these stories and even reads them by herself when we are finished reading aloud together. Highly recommend this book and others in the series for 2nd grade readers. "
