Dear Reader,

Do you like Piggy and Gerald? How about Frog and Toad? Well, let me tell you about Mercy Watson, another funny, lovable character. Mercy is a pig that is spoiled. She is not only funny, but mischievous.

In Mercy Watson Thinks Like a Pig she was the most mischievous thing on Earth because next door the Lincolns had just planted new pansies. Can you tell what Mercy does to the pansies? But I donít want to give too much away!

Mercy is funny because thinks she is one of the people in the family. She loves toast with a great deal of butter on it. Mercy is dreaming of mountains of butter and toast.

Another reason Mercy is so funny is because she went to a tea party and wore a funny hat. She was upset because the tea and cake weren't real! Now, that is funny, right?

I feel excited because I think I have convinced you to read the whole entire series of Mercy Watson. Also, I think you will love the Mercy Watson series because I think you would love the funny and mischievous Mercy. I hope you do.

Happy Reading,
