About this item

Description



About the Book



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 Mercy Watson, who is inspired by the smell of popcorn. Full color.



Book Synopsis



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.



Review Quotes



Youngsters are sure to delight in the exploits of this butter-loving pig, savoring DiCamillo's 'wonky in the extreme' text and Van Dusen's energetic, innocent art.
--School Library Journal

It's truly satisfying to step into the flamboyant world of Mercy Watson and give oneself to the latest adventure.
--Yellow Brick Road
