Mercy Watson Goes for a Ride

Mercy Watson is a pig who loves toast.   She lives with Mr. and Mrs. Watson, who love Mercy and treat her like their child except they won’t let Mercy drive the convertible. Watch Mercy take matters into her own hooves and find out how toast just might be the answer when a police officer and cantankerous neighbour are involved.

Written by Kate DiCamillo and illustrated by Chris Van Dusen, Mercy Watson has a whole series of adventures, some of which you can see on the stage in DiCamillo’s own Minneapolis.
