Mercy Watson: Princess in Disguise Paperback – Illustrated, June 4, 2010
Enhance your purchase
When the Watsons decide to zip their porcine wonder into a formfitting princess dress for Halloween — complete with tiara — they are certain that Mercy will be beautiful beyond compare. Mercy is equally certain she likes the sound of trick-or-treating and can picture piles of buttered toast already. As for the Lincoln Sisters next door, how could they know that their cat would lead them all on a Halloween "parade" of hysterical proportions? Kate DiCamillo’s beguiling pig is back in a tale full of treats, tricky turns, hijinks, and high humor.

With the Mercy stories (of the adorably-ugly pet pig) our niece began to appreciate the author. I always talk of the 'creative brain' or ask 'how do you think she thought up this story?!'...Now she has read these books and we have helped her move on to a more matured reading (still a challenge since there are less pictures) of Winn Dixie.
This fun character Mercy is a good way to engage the non reader. I think the book is a little more engaging for a younger child, unless the child is not strong in reading, then try this and then move on! Good luck!
