That is when Mrs. Watson announces the Mercy will be a princess. Mrs. Watson works tirelessly on creating the perfect princess dress. There is just one problem. Mercy is refusing to wear the costume.
Will Mercy's stubbornness cause her to miss out on the fun of Halloween? Can a pig really become a princess?
I absolutely love this book! Halloween stories are my favorite and this one definitely delivers. DiCamillo has created a cast of humorously quirky and memorable characters. Mercy's spunky spirit is can be seen in everything that she does. Children will cheer Mercy on in her quest to become the first trick-or-treating pig.
Chris Van Dusen's illustrations are fantastic. The colors are vibrant and bold, which will certainly captivate young readers. Each scene had me chuckling while Mercy got into more and more mischief.
This is a wonderful Halloween read for children ages 5-8. I cannot wait to read more books in the Mercy Watson series.
