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!"
~ Booklist

"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."
~ School Library Journal
