Publisher's Summary

Leroy Ninker is a small man with a big dream: he wants to be a cowboy, but for now, he's just a thief. In fact, Leroy is robbing the Watsons' kitchen right this minute! As he drags the toaster across the counter ( screeeeeech) and drops it into his bag ( clannngggg), little does he know that a certain large pig who loves toast with a great deal of butter is stirring from sleep.

Even less could he guess that a comedy of errors (not to mention the buttery sweets in his pocket) will soon lead this little man on the wild and raucous rodeo ride he's always dreamed of! Nosy neighbors, astonished firemen, a puzzled policeman, and the return of the ever-doting Watsons make for a new tongue-in-snout adventure about Kate DiCamillo's delightfully single-minded pig.

only one story

The picture was clearly of the Mercy Watson collection (books 3 and 4) but only included one story.

Don't Be Fooled

The Mercy Watson books are among our very favorite children's books, and the performance of this one is excellent. However, the cover of this audiobook is deceptive. I bought it, thinking I was going to get both Mercy Watson Fights Crime and Mercy Watson Princess in Disguise (as it clearly shows on the cover), but it is actually only Mercy Watson Fights Crime. It is partly my fault because I should have looked more closely at the description before purchasing. Nonetheless, Audible should correct the cover so that it accurately displays what people are buying. This would be a decent price for two books, but it is overpriced for just one. Don't be fooled like I was.

Only one story

Story and performance fine, but this is not a collection — just Mercy Watson fights crime.

There is only one story

This recording has only one story. I only purchased it because it was advertised as 2. I would like my credit back

This is missing the other story!!!

Only Mercy Watson fights crime is in this audio book, not the princess one. Very frustrating, as I only bought it for the double story. Story otherwise is great, as is the audiobook performer. It would be nice to have a female narrator, mist audiobooks I get are male, I’d like to have more diversity.

cover is false advertising it as a collection

the cover says 2 stories but its only one. the title suggests it as just the one. they need to use correct cover. It is deceiving. Other than that it is great. Cute story.

A favorite!

My four-year-old daughter has listened to this many many times and continues to love it!
