Mercy Watson Goes for a Ride by Kate DiCamillo

Book Description

Have Mercy! The porcine wonder returns in the second in Kate DiCamillo's exciting new series. Every Saturday Mr. Watson takes Mercy for a ride in his shiny convertible. And every Saturday, the hot-buttered-toast-loving pig wants to drive. She finally gets the chance when, one day, the next-door neighbour stows away and Mercy uses the distraction to take the wheel...But Mercy soon discovers that porcine wonders can no more drive than they can fly! Welcome to the wry and endearing world of Mercy Watson - an ebullient new character, brightly captured with comic, nostalgic flair. Divided into short chapters, this light-hearted new series is ideal for young readers branching out from picture books to fiction.

Reviews

US Kirkus Review » She's back! Mercy, the porcine wonder, is back in all her buttered-toast eating glory. It's Saturday, time for a ride in the pink convertible. But, does Mercy like to ride or drive? Drive! Only Mrs. Watson's promise of extra helpings of hot buttered toast can get this clever pig to scoot across the front seat and enjoy the weekly adventure. And when next-door neighbor Baby Lincoln hankers for a little adventure of her own, the fun really begins. From the toast icons that surround the page numbers, to faux-tape spine, and hilariously gaudy over-the-top illustrations, this is a throw-back in the best sense of the word. When Mercy ends up sitting on top of Mr. Watson in the driver's seat and Baby has to crawl over the seat to help out, it's hard not to think of Lucy, Ethel and Ricky caught in another pickle. All's well that ends well, of course, and that means everyone can celebrate with a stack of toast and an extra pat of butter. (Fiction. 6-8) (Kirkus Reviews)
