Every porcine wonder was once a piglet! Celebrate the joy of a new arrival with this endearing picture book prequel to the New York Times bestselling Mercy Watson series.
Mr Watson and Mrs Watson live ordinary lives. Sometimes their lives feel a bit too ordinary. Sometimes they wish something different would happen. 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 Watsons’ lives will never be the same.
- Find out how Mercy joined the Watson family, and delight in spotting familiar characters and seeing how they've changed. (Careful readers will notice Stella and Frank in the background!)
- A story about unconditional love for an unexpected (and very wanted) new baby – perfect for readers looking for a gentle adoption tale.
- Kate DiCamillo is a two-time Newbery medallist and her books have been translated into 40 languages worldwide.
