Community Reviews


This book is short and hilarious.


Mercy Watson is the name of the pet pig, for those who are new to this series. She like adventure and her curiosity lands her into trouble often that tends to lend humor to the story. Its a good book for young readers who are venturing into chapter books. There is not much of a story line, and has several repetitions which may be boring for older kids or kids who have started reading more serious books with good story lines.

Cute book

The Mercy Watson series is great. The books are very entertaining for both young and old. Finally something got my daughter interested in reading. Wish it did not take me so long to discover it. Mercy sure can get into trouble.
