Something Wonky This Way Comes

Rating
"Youngsters are sure to delight in the exploits of this butter-loving pig, savoring the wonky in the extreme text and energetic, innocent art." -School Library Journal Some may find it wonky to take a pig to the drive-in. But not the Watsons, who think the movie s title, When Pigs Fly, is inspirational. And not their beloved Mercy, who is inspired by the scent of real butter from the theater s Bottomless Buckets of popcorn. As they pull up in their convertible, Mercy lifts up her snout and becomes a pig on a mission, leading a delirious chase that s trailed by hapless rescuers reunited from Mercy s earlier adventures."
