The Mercy Watson Collection
Kindergarten-Grade 2?Kate DiCamillo, the Newbery award-winning author best known for her novels for older children, has recently written short chapter books for the younger crowd starring a lively pig named Mercy Watson. Mercy lives in the house with her doting owners who treat her like their own child, singing her lullabies and making sure she is adequately supplied with her favorite food?buttered toast. The sisters who live next door are split on whether Mercy is a good or a bad neighbor (rather like the Wilsons and Dennis the Menace.) In Mercy Watson to the Rescue (Candlewick, 2005), Mercy goes for help and saves her family when their bed fall through a hole, more from accident than intent. Mercy indulges herself in Mercy Watson Goes for a Ride (Candlewick, 2006) as she takes the wheel of the car and tries a little driving, much to the surprise of a local police officer. The stories, ably performed by Ron McLarty, stand on their own without need of background music or sound effects. Each tale is gently humorous, and children will grin at Mercys adventures, and then probably head to the kitchen for their own well-buttered toast.
