Synopses & Reviews

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:

Some may find it wonky to take a pig to the drive-in. But not the Watsons, who think the movie's title, "When Pigs Fly," is inspirational. And not Mercy Watson, who is inspired by the smell of popcorn. Full color.

Synopsis:

"Youngsters are sure to delight in the exploits of this butter-loving pig, savoring the ‘wonky in the extreme text and energetic, innocent art." -School Library Journal

Some may find it wonky to take a pig to the drive-in. But not the Watsons, who think the movies title, When Pigs Fly, is inspirational. And not their beloved Mercy, who is inspired by the scent of real butter from the theaters Bottomless Buckets of popcorn. As they pull up in their convertible, Mercy lifts up her snout and becomes a pig on a mission, leading a delirious chase thats trailed by hapless rescuers reunited from Mercys earlier adventures.
