Do you like toast!? Then you'll love the book Mercy Watson by Kate DiCamillo. The book is about a pink pig named Mercy that loves hot buttered toast with a massive deal of butter. Mercy lives in a house with Mr. and Mrs. Watson, her mom and dad. Her mom and dad are people and Mercy is a pig. Mercy usually gets into trouble in all of the books. Some of the other characters are Baby Lincoln and Eugenia. They are the neighbors.

My opinion is that I really like this book because it makes me laugh. I really like the part in Mercy Watson Goes for a Ride when Mr. Watson stops and Mercy flies out of the car into the bushes because Mercy isn't wearing a seat belt. I also like the part where Eugenia yells out to Mr. Watson that he is a terrible driver. Another part that makes me laugh is when Mr. Watson speeds past the police officer and the police officer chases him.

I recommend this book because it is really funny and it will make you laugh. I also recommend this book for 1st to 3rd graders.
