Grade 2–4—In this installment, the porcine protagonist outrages the Lincoln sisters when she sneaks through their hedge and eats their newly planted pansies. Eugenia Lincoln calls animal control, and Officer Francine Poulet shows up determined to "think like a pig" and catch the culprit. Chaos ensues, and the porker escapes to enjoy another day of buttered toast. Fans of the series will welcome this addition to Mercy's adventures and be amused by the hyperbolic quality of Van Dusen's color illustrations.—Farida S. Dowler, formerly at Mercer Island Library, WA

The fifth in the series featuring troublesome Mercy finds the pig relaxing out back while elderly sisters Eugenia and Baby Lincoln are busy planting petunias. Unfortunately, Mercy is lured by the delectable flowers, munching them almost as fast as the sisters plant. Eugenia is so angry she calls animal control, and soon Officer Francine Poulet is on the way. This tale takes the focus off Mercy a bit, giving children the opportunity to connect with some of the other characters, including the intrepid Poulet. As usual, Van Dusen’s shiny, stylized artwork captures all the fun of Mercy’s capers.
