“Halloween was made for carefree Mercy Watson.”
—School Library Journal

When the Watsons decide to zip their porcine wonder into a formfitting princess dress for Halloween —complete with tiara — they are certain that Mercy will be beautiful beyond compare. Mercy is equally certain she likes the sound of trick-or-treating and can picture piles of buttered toast already. As for the Lincoln sisters next door, how could they know that their cat would lead them all on a Halloween “parade” of hysterical proportions? Kate DiCamillo’s delightful pig is back in a tale full of treats, tricky turns, hijinks, and high humor.

The porcine wonder created by Newbery Medalist DiCamillo ("The Tale of Despereaux") is off to the drive-in--and driven to follow a buttery smell--in a comic crescendo that reunites a familiar cast of characters. Full color.
