by Kate DiCamillo, illustrated by Chris Van Dusen
Beginning readers and their younger sibs will love this set of short chapter books starring Mercy, a lovable pig raised by a human couple. Acclaimed author DiCamillo (of Because of Winn-Dixie fame) spins a bunch of hilarious adventures for the plucky porker – driving a car and capturing a thief are just a couple of Mercy's many achievements. Fun illustrations make this set a true page-turner. Ages 8 to 12.
