Mercy Watson to the Rescue by Kate DiCamillo

I know the Mercy Watson books have been out for a while now, but somehow I have never got around to reading one.

I have always assumed that Kate DiCamillo = excellent.

I'm happy to report that the equation holds true.

Mercy Watson is delightful, charming and funny. The colour illustrations from Chris Van Dusen add to the appeal of this tale about an adventure loving pig who loves toast with lots of butter.

Mercy Watson is very different to the other DiCamillo characters & books, but then these books are aimed at a much younger reader.

There are now 6 books in this series, available individually or as a boxed set.

And DiCamillo has a great webpage for the kids all about Mercy.

An excellent early reader or to read aloud 5+
