Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

PreS-Gr 2-In this prequel to the popular beginning reader series, fans will discover how the "porcine wonder" first made her appearance at the ordinary home of Mr. and Mrs. Watson on Deckawoo Drive. DiCamillo depicts the mundane lifestyle of the Watsons, who wish something different would happen. Cue the entrance of one adorable piglet bouncing off "Molson's Pig Transport" and wandering onto their porch with their morning paper. Readers of the series will delight in seeing familiar characters like Eugenia and Baby Lincoln fussing over Mercy's entrance, and discovering how Mercy ends up with her name. Van Dusen's exemplary gouache illustrations perfectly capture the personalities of each character, especially the rambunctious and adorable Mercy. Although not a beginning reader like the rest of the series, this Mercy Watson picture book will appeal to her many fans and will serve as a great introduction for younger children. VERDICT A solid purchase for libraries where Mercy Watson has a following.-Rachel Zuffa, Case High School, Racine, WIα(c) Copyright 2011.
