Mercy Watson to the Rescue

By Kate DiCamillo

A delightful tale about Mercy the pig and the interesting cast of characters who surround her: Mr. & Mrs. Watson (love is blind); Eugenia and Baby (aging spinsters who have conflicting opinions about Mercy); and Lorenzo and Ned (firefighters determined to do their job to their bestest). The illustrations by Chris Van Dusen are outstanding and help bring Kate DiCamillo's entertaining story to life. I read this to my granddaughter and it kept her delightfully wonderfully engaged the entire time.
