A Piglet Named Mercy
Collection Development A Piglet Prequel! Announcing Kate DiCamillo’s A PIGLET NAMED MERCY

Have Mercy! There’s a new piglet in town. Your young porcine-loving patrons may already know Mercy from her buttered toast-eating, convertible-riding, crime-fighting adventures, but they don’t yet know the story of how this pulchritudinous pig brought puckish joy into the lives of the erstwhile predictable Watsons. In the A Piglet Named Mercy audiobook, young listeners will learn how the Watson’s lives went from ordinary to really quite extra-oink-inary with the arrival of one very small, very unpredictable piglet. Ideal for family listening in the car, before bed or nap time, or hanging out on a rainy day. Make sure to stock up on this newest edition to the Mercy Watson collection!

Every porcine wonder was once a piglet! Celebrate the joy of a new arrival with the prequel to the New York Times best-selling Mercy Watson series—on audio.

And one day it does, when someone unpredictable finds her way to their front door. In a delightful origin story for the star of the Mercy Watson series, a tiny piglet brings love (and chaos) to Deckawoo Drive—and the Watson’s lives will never be the same.

Mercy Watson #1: Mercy Watson to the Rescue
To Mr. & Mrs. Watson, Mercy is not just a pig—she’s a porcine wonder. And to the portly and good-natured Mercy, the Watson’s are an excellent source of buttered toast, no to mention that buttery-toast feeling she gets when she snuggles in to bed with them. This is not, however, so good for the Watsons’s bed. BOOM! CRACK! Welcome to the wry and endearing world of Mercy Watson.

Mercy Watson #2: Mercy Watson Goes for a Ride
Mr. and Mrs. Watson’s porcine wonder, Mercy, loves nothing more than a ride in the car. It takes a fair amount of nudging and bribing and a “You are such a good sport, darling” to get the portly pig out of the driver’s seat, but once the convertible is on the road, Mercy loves the feel of the wind tickling her ears and the sun on her snout.

It’s Halloween on Deckawoo Drive, and Mr. and Mrs. Watson have decided on the perfect costume for Mercy. Mercy is encouraged by the promise of treats. For what could be better than a treat-getting adventure? Especially if it happens to involve a chase…

Eugenia and Baby Lincoln may live next door to a pig, but that doesn’t stop them from living a gracious life. And the amiable Mercy Watson is equally determined to follow the delightful scent (and delicious taste) of the pansies her thoughtful neighbors are planting to beautify their yard. “Where have all the flowers gone?” shouts Eugenia, who is finally ready to take extreme measures and dial Animal Control! Has Mercy’s swine song come at last? Or will her well-pampered instincts keep her in buttered toast?

Mercy Watson #6: Something Wonky This Way Comes
Mr. and Mrs. Watson and their porcine wonder, Mercy, are off to the Bijou Drive-In.
