Synopsis

Oh, Mercy! Pig out on the first six adventures in the New York Times best-selling series, all tucked together in one enticing box--the perfect gift!

Foiling a robber, driving a car, squeezing into a tutu--is there anything the porcine wonder won't do in her single-minded pursuit of treats, buttered toast, or just a rollicking fun time? And who knows what other adventures twinkle in her mischievous eyes? Here, for Mercy Watson's loyal fans and new friends, comes a big fat paperback collection of pig tales that will have readers squealing with delight. Included are:

MERCY WATSON TO THE RESCUE
MERCY WATSON GOES FOR A RIDE
MERCY WATSON FIGHTS CRIME
MERCY WATSON: PRINCESS IN DISGUISE
MERCY WATSON THINKS LIKE A PIG
MERCY WATSON: SOMETHING WONKY THIS WAY COMES

About Kate DiCamillo

Kate DiCamillo - Mercy Watson Boxed Set: Adventures of a Porcine Wonder
Kate DiCamillo is the author of THE TALE OF DESPEREAUX, which received the Newbery Medal; BECAUSE OF WINN-DIXIE, which received a Newbery Honor; and THE TIGER RISING, which was named a National Book Award Finalist. She says, "Mercy Watson had been in my head for a long time, but I couldn't figure out how to tell her story. One day, my friend Alison was going on and on and on about the many virtues of toast. As I listened to her, I could see Mercy nodding in emphatic agreement. Sometimes you don't truly understand a character until you know what she loves above all else."

About Chris Van Dusen

Chris Van Dusen - Mercy Watson Boxed Set: Adventures of a Porcine Wonder
Chris Van Dusen is the author-illustrator of DOWN TO THE SEA WITH MR. MAGEE, A CAMPING SPREE WITH MR. MAGEE, and IF I BUILT A CAR. He says, "When I first read Mercy Watson to the Rescue, the characters were very vivid in my mind, and they just came to life when I started painting. This is exactly the type of story I love to illustrate – a wonderfully silly adventure with lots of action." This is his first book with Candlewick Press.
