Publisher Comments:

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:

It's the best thing since buttered toast — Mercy Watson in paperback

To Mr. and Mrs. Watson, Mercy is not just a pig — she's a porcine wonder. And to the good-natured Mercy, the Watsons are an excellent source of buttered toast, not to mention that buttery-toasty feeling she gets when she snuggles into bed with them. This is not, however, so good for the Watsons' bed. BOOM CRACK

About the Author

Kate DiCamillo is the author of THE TALE OF DESPEREAUX, which received the Newbery Medal; BECAUSE OF WINN-DIXIE, which received a Newbery Honor; and THE TIGER RISING, which was named a National Book Award Finalist. She says, "Mercy Watson had been in my head for a long time, but I couldn't figure out how to tell her story. One day, my friend Alison was going on and on and on about the many virtues of toast. As I listened to her, I could see Mercy nodding in emphatic agreement. Sometimes you don't truly understand a character until you know what she loves above all else."

Chris Van Dusen is the author-illustrator of DOWN TO THE SEA WITH MR. MAGEE, A CAMPING SPREE WITH MR. MAGEE, and IF I BUILT A CAR. He says, "When I first read Mercy Watson to the Rescue, the characters were very vivid in my mind, and they just came to life when I started painting. This is exactly the type of story I love to illustrate - a wonderfully silly adventure with lots of action." This is his first book with Candlewick Press.

I can't believe I haven't heard of Mercy Watson before! These books are funny and cute, with lots of interesting details in the illustrations. I love the pieces of toast in the corner of the page! The stories are fun to read aloud or easy enough for beginning readers to read to themselves. I can't wait to add the entire set to my classroom library.
