Mr. and Mrs. Watson’s porcine wonder, Mercy, loves nothing more than a ride in the car. It takes a fair amount of nudging and bribing and a “You are such a good sport, darling” to get the portly pig out of the driver’s seat, but once the convertible is on the road, Mercy loves the feel of the wind tickling her ears and the sun on her snout.

    " I read this to my five year old girls and they were hanging on my every word...as was I! What a fabulous adventure with great characters. My favorite was Officer Tomilello. The artwork was perfect. Pairing the fabulous writer, Kate DiCamillo, with the superb illustrator, Chris Van Dusen...makes for a 5 star book, hands down. "

    " Fun read for the kindergarten - 3rd grade set. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jean-Marie | 2/8/2014

    " This series is a household favorite! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Madelle | 2/6/2014

    " My granddaughters and I read four of six in this series during their recent visit. These are read outloud, laugh outloud and enjoy books for kids and adults. The stories are charming and hilarious and the illustrations just lovely. Of course, Mercy who is a pig that lives with the Watsons and sleeps in their bed, gets into much mischief. She likes "toast with a great deal of butter on it." We all though that was a great idea! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Kristyn | 2/5/2014

    " We picked this up at the library because I heard the series was a good transition to chapter books. My oldest can sit for hours with picture books and storybooks, but he gets restless as soon as two facing pages are all text no pictures. We've read this one twice already. It's lighthearted. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Vivian | 12/30/2013

    " 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. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Cheryl in CC NV | 12/13/2013

    " I can see how beginning readers would get a kick out of this funny series. I've not read the first - but I suspect that's the best. Don't read if you like buttered toast and are trying to eat healthfully. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Diane | 12/10/2013

    " Delightful characters & illustrations. Great vocabulary (introduces some unusual words). Easy juvenile. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Cherie | 12/9/2013

    " A pig drives a car and a police goes after him. Then they eat toast afterward which is Mercy's favorite food. It's very funny. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Emily Warner | 3/12/2013

    " This story is about a pig named Mercy. Her owners, Mr. and Mrs. Watson, go for a ride with mercy every weekend in their convertible. Mercy decided she wants to drive the car and they soon run into some trouble. This book is a great read for students, but they may need some help with vocabulary. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Cynthia | 5/25/2012

    " Mercy will not stop until she gets to drive Mr. Watson's convertible. This is a nice tale and the Watson family is full of love for each other. Baby Lincoln, the neighbor, knows that there is a time for some outlandish fun. Too bad her older sister does not agree. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Mrs. | 4/8/2012

    " Boy can DiCamillo go from one audience to another so well. Love these fun little stories for the beginning chapter book reader. Love the illustrations the large print along with the gloss looking paper. Just a fun book to feel and a fun series to read. 2008 Geisel Honor book "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Emily | 4/7/2012

    " Abbie and Nate both love these books. They are simple enough for Nate to read and they have big text. Abbie loves the stories and remembers them easily. The author is the same woman who wrote The Tale of Despereaux. "
