Mercy Watson: Something Wonky This Way Comes by Kate DiCamillo

DiCamillo, Kate. Mercy Watson: Something Wonky This Way Comes, illustrated by Chris Van Dusen. 86 pgs. Candlewick Press, 2009. $12.99. Sexual Content-G; Language-G; Violence-G. Mercy Watson is a butter-lovin’ pig, so when the Watson’s go to the drive in she is in hog heaven with all the buttery popcorn. Mercy helps herself to some stranger’s popcorn and starts a riot. Meanwhile the Watson’s notice that she’s missing and the chase begins. The 1950’s style illustrations are sure to enchant, while the story isn’t very interesting, Mercy’s fans will enjoy another adventure with her. EL – ADVISABLE. Samantha, Public Librarian.
