Publisher's Summary

To Mr. and Mrs. Watson, Mercy is not just a pig, she's a porcine wonder. And to the portly and good-natured Mercy, the Watsons are an excellent source of buttered toast, not to mention that buttery-toast feeling she gets when she snuggles into 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.

Delightful, fun, soothing

My kids loved this when they were little, and listened for nostalgia as they got older. It was such a fave that “toast with a great deal of butter” became one of our family catch phrases. A great one for evening wind down.

Perfect for a variety of ages

We discovered Mercy Watson when my children were 4-5, and we still love her two years later! Even I don't mind hearing this book over and over and over (and parents know that's a rare find!), and I love hearing my kids howl with laughter. Mercy Watson is a pig, but her owners treat her like a person. Hilarity ensues, always finishing up with "toast, with a great deal of butter." Anybody want to know what our favorite breakfast is? Yep, toast, with a great deal of butter.

8 year old review

My daughter thought the book was really funny. She enjoyed baby sister and how she says things about the pig and chases the pig around the yard. She thinks it's funny that Mercy likes toast with butter on it just like she does.
She recommends it for any child who likes pigs or any child who likes to laugh ... a lot.

Needs pictures!

My son enjoyed the story but we didn't like the fact that it didn't have any pictures. Other than that it was ok!
