Mercy Watson is adorably precocious and utterly porcine. While Mercy is enjoying some fresh lemonade with her owners/parents, she smells fresh pansies and promptly wanders next door to eat them because they taste as good as they smell. Naturally, the neighbors are not pleased and call animal control. Hijinks ensue. DiCamillo mostly tells the story through simple words and phrases, but she also slips in more complex words, such as porcine, subtly. She deftly uses them in context that makes them clear to young readers. While these books are the perfect transition book from picture books to chapter books, they would also make excellent read aloud books for younger children.
Needless to say, Eugenia Lincoln is rather cross and calls animal control. Hearing this, her sister Baby, goes around to the Watsons to let them know about the "unmentionable horror"' that is about to happen! In the meantime, two neighborhood children have come to invite Mercy to a tea party which Mercy willingly goes to thinking there will be more delicious food for her.
Read the book to see what happens. Will Francine Poulet find Mercy?
For some reason our kids LOVE this book and want it read repeatedly. While I do see the humor in it, its simplicity and constant repeating of the same people's names gets a tad monotonous and makes the story longer than it needs to be. The illustrations are fabulous and definitely help with the appeal of this book.
He not only loved it, he asked that I get the whole collection, so I did.
He laughs out loud when he reads it.
