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+

I love hearing from you but I understand that blogger commenting can be a frustrating experience for many.

Make sure you're logged into your account before writing your comment, otherwise blogger will eat it. I have occasionally found lost comments by hitting the back arrow button.

A recent discussion with blogger admin revealed that the ability to post comments "is sensitive to both cookie and script filters. Your readers may need to enable (stop filtering) 'third party cookies', in their browser and on their computer. And, have them check their script filters, too. Third party cookies filtering, in a browser setting, is the most common solution. Filters are subject to update, by the creator. If the problem started a few days ago, your readers may have to look on their computers, and find out what product or accessory was updated, a few days ago."
I hope this helps. Using a different browser for a while was another suggestion.

All anonymous comments will be deleted.

If all else fails, you can contact me on my fb page or twitter.

Thanks to another increase in spam comments I have now added word verification on ALL posts.
