Mercy Watson Thinks Like a Pig (Mercy Watson)by Kate Dicamillo
Synopses & Reviews
Can Mercy Watson outwit . . . Animal Control? The porcine wonders on the lam in her latest tongue-in-snout adventure!
Eugenia and Baby Lincoln may live next door to a pig, but that doesnt stop them from living a gracious life. And the amiable Mercy Watson is equally determined to follow the delightful scent (and delicious taste) of the pansies her thoughtful neighbors are planting to beautify their yard. "Where have all the flowers gone?" shouts Eugenia, who is finally ready to take extreme measures —- and dial Animal Control! Has Mercys swine song come at last? Or will her well-pampered instincts keep her in buttered toast?
