Mercy Watson to the Rescue by Kate DiCamillo

Kate DiCamillo, author of such favorites as Because of Winn-Dixie and The Tale of Despereaux, has started a new series for younger readers. The first book in the series is Mercy Watson to the Rescue. Mercy is the beloved pig of Mr. and Mrs. Watson. The Watson’s take very good care of Mercy. She has her own bed to sleep in, and Mrs. Watson makes her lots and lots of her favorite food, hot buttered toast. One night Mercy doesn’t sleep in her own bed and things turn chaotic. The Watson’s think their Mercy is off to rescue them, but could Mercy have other things on her mind? Recommended for readers in grades 1-3, but older readers may want to get to know Mercy too. Look for it in the Beginning Readers section. (E/DIC)
