Mr. Watson and Mrs. Watson live ordinary lives. Sometimes, their lives feel a bit too ordinary. But then one day,
someone unpredictable finds her way to their front door on Deckawoo Drive.
"The popular early-reader series about Mercy the pig gets an origin story in this delightful picture book. As in the previous books, the gouache illustrations are polished to a sheen, and happily here have more room to shine. Bring on the toast!"
"As ever, Van Dusen’s bright colors and bold characterization joyfully accompany DiCamillo’s story, this time of new and evolving familial love."
~ Publishers Weekly
"Van Dusen’s exemplary gouache illustrations perfectly capture the personalities of each character, especially the rambunctious and adorable Mercy."
