Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The porcine wonder is off to the drive-in — and driven to follow that buttery smell — in a comic crescendo that reunites a familiar cast of characters.

Some may find it wonky to take a pig to the movies. But not Mr. and Mrs. Watson, who think the title of the film, WHEN PIGS FLY, is inspirational. And not their beloved Mercy, who is inspired by the fact that the drive-in proudly serves real butter on its Bottomless Bucket of popcorn. So when they pull up in their convertible, Mercy lifts her snout and becomes a pig on a mission — for what is more heavenly than being hot on the trail of a true butter smell? Masterful slapstick director Kate DiCamillo sends Mercy on a delirious chase, followed by a trail of hapless rescuers whom fans will recognize from prior episodes. And Chris Van Dusen's comic retro illustrations perfectly capture a nostalgic pastime — along with the newest antics of a charmingly single-minded pig.

Synopsis:

When the Watsons decide to zip their porcine wonder into a formfitting princess costume for Halloween--complete with a tiara--hilarity ensues. Full color.

Synopsis:

Oh, Mercy! Pig out on the first six adventures in the New York Times best-selling series, all tucked together in one enticing box—the perfect gift!

Foiling a robber, driving a car, squeezing into a tutu—is there anything the porcine wonder wont do in her single-minded pursuit of treats, buttered toast, or just a rollicking fun time? And who knows what other adventures twinkle in her mischievous eyes? Here, for Mercy Watsons loyal fans and new friends, comes a big fat paperback collection of pig tales that will have readers squealing with delight. Included are:

MERCY WATSON TO THE RESCUE

MERCY WATSON FIGHTS CRIME

MERCY WATSON: PRINCESS IN DISGUISE
