Publisher Comments:

The beguiling porcine wonder turns bucking bronco to snare a robber in this hilarious new addition to the NEW YORK TIMES bestselling series.

Leroy Ninker is a small man with a big dream: he wants to be a cowboy, but for now he's just a thief. In fact, Leroy is robbing the Watsons' kitchen right this minute As he drags the toaster across the counter — screeeeeech — and drops it into his bag — clannngggg — little does he know that a certain large pig who loves toast with a great deal of butter is stirring from sleep. Even less could he guess that comedy of errors (not to mention the buttery sweets in his pocket) will soon lead this little man on the wild and raucous rodeo ride he's always dreamed of Nosy neighbors, astonished firemen, a puzzled policeman, and the ever-doting Watsons return for a new tongue-in-snout adventure about Kate DiCamillo's delightfully single-minded pig.

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 GOES FOR A RIDE

MERCY WATSON FIGHTS CRIME

MERCY WATSON: PRINCESS IN DISGUISE

MERCY WATSON THINKS LIKE A PIG

MERCY WATSON: SOMETHING WONKY THIS WAY COMES

Synopsis:

“Another rollicking addition starring the porcine wonder. . . . Will keep newly independent readers turning the pages.”
