Higginson, Sheila Sweeny. Mighty Merc. Disney Hyperion, 2015. $3.99. PICTURE BOOK.
When Admirals Watson and Crick send a new robot called Axel to replace Merc, it’s up to Miles to show everyone that Merc is more than just a robot. Will he succeed? A fun, easy to follow picture book. The text is well-complemented by the true-to-show illustrations. Young children who enjoy the tv show Miles From Tomorrowland or who like adventures in space will enjoy have this book read aloud to them. PreK, EL (K-3). ADVISABLE.
