    " Mercy wakes up one night to the sound of the toaster being moved. Was someone making her favorite: buttered toast? When she investigates, she finds a thief in the Watson's home. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Dianna | 1/30/2014

    " Mercy Watson goes looking for toast and catches a burglar instead. My kids love this as they have the other Mercy Watson books. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Henry Martin | 1/18/2014

    " Nice to see the same returning characters get in yet another hilarious situation. As always, the toast is the key. The wanna-be cowboy was priceless. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Nessie | 1/17/2014

    " My son and I picked this up at the library to read together. He had it nearly finished before I knew he had started it. Although I missed the first 2/3 of the story, my son could not put it down and seemed disappointed when we finished it. My son has also found a mysterious new love for buttered toast. Hmmmm...... I wonder why. ;) "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Brandy | 1/15/2014

    " Silly animal story that little kids will flock to. Worth noting: the stories are self-contained but make reference to earlier adventures . "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Horace Mann Family Reading Challenge | 1/12/2014

    " This was fun. Mercy Watson catches a robber by falling asleep in front of the door. She sat on him until help came. She was a hero. I. R. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Ethan | 12/10/2013

    " This was the first chapter book I read to my children. I love to read and really try to rub that off on them. As soon as I started reading, my 4 and 5 year old were mesmerized. This Mercy Watson book has adventure, suspense, and a heroic ending. Perfect beginner books for the kiddos! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Ellen | 9/7/2013

    " This book went over so well with the k-4 students I read it to today. After each short chapter, I asked the kids if I should continue and the almost unanimous response was "YES!" Mercy is still a toast loving pig and she stops a burglar who tries to rob the Watson home. Simple story, fun stuff. "

    " 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. "

  • 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

  • 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 "
