Mercy Watson to the Rescue

To Mr. & Mrs. Watson, Mercy is not just a pig-she's a porcine wonder. And to the portly and good-natured Mercy, the Watson's are an excellent source of buttered toast, no to mention that buttery-toast feeling she gets when she snuggles in to bed with them. This is not, however so good for the Watsons' bed. BOOM CRACK Welcome to the wry and endearing world of Mercy Watson.

Mercy Watson Goes for a Ride

Mr. and Mrs. Watson's porcine wonder, Mercy, loves nothing more than a ride in the car. It takes a fair amount of nudging and bribing and a "You are such a good sport, darling" to get the portly pig out of the driver's seat, but once the convertible is on the road, Mercy loves the feel of the wind tickling her ears and the sun on her snout.

Published Reviews
Publisher's Weekly Review: "Because of Winn-Dixie, the Newbery Honor-winning debut of Kate DiCamillo, has made such a splash into popular culture that one can even purchase a plush "Winn-Dixie" toy. Her new character Mercy, the "porcine wonder," may be next in the popularity line. Certainly children will relate to this lovable porker, her relentless pursuit of "hot toast with a great deal of butter" and her ability to allow this narrow focus to lead her blindly into unforeseen situations (that, fortunately for her, inadvertently make her into the town hero). Actor-turned-writer Ron McLarty does an excellent job of narrating Mercy's adventures. His voice carries just the right balance of a knowing but friendly authority who himself is charmed by the overly enthusiastic Mercy. His years as a voiceover talent serve him well, allowing him to conjure up wonderful voices for all of the characters. Particularly fun is his cartoonish public official voice for Officer Tomillelo, whose internal dialogue goes like this: "Have laws been broken here? Most certainly, laws have been broken here."
