Kate DiCamillo is the author of The Magician's Elephant, a New York Times bestseller; The Tale of Despereaux, which was awarded the Newbery Medal; Because of Winn-Dixie, a Newbery Honor book; and six books starring Mercy Watson, including the Theodor Seuss Geisel Honor Book Mercy Watson Goes for a Ride. She lives in Minneapolis.
As always, the Watsons' enthusiasm for their porcine marvel is both hysterical and heartwarming. There is something reassuring about the way they regard Mercy: She is beautiful. She is wonderful. She is adored. Which actually sums up the way I feel about Kate DiCamillo's series. --Kidsreads.com Kate DiCamillo's porcine heroine returns...once again all's well that ends with buttered toast. --Publishers Weekly The humorous tone and simple sentences will appeal to young readers, as will Chris Van Dusen's energetic gouache paintings. --Washington Parent How can you go wrong with a pig in a pink tutu and tiara? --San Francisco Chronicle There's a lot of silly fun in store for readers. --Journal Inquirer Learning-to-read kids will appreciate Chris Van Dusen's dynamic illustrations that are interspersed throughout the text. --Associated Press The brilliantly colored illustrations by Chris Van Dusen pack a comical punch. --Scripps-Howard The hilarious colored paintings, packed with action and emotion, add momentum to the pandemonium in this perfect beginning chapter book for second-graders. --Chicago Sun-Times An irresistible reading romp with lightning-fast action and sparkling slapstick illustrations. --Curriculum Connection
