11. Mercy Watson goes for a ride by Kate DiCamillo, illustrated by Chris Van Dusen

            Mercy Watson is a happy-go-lucky pig who loves buttered toast in this Easy Reader J-level book.  Her parents love her to bits and think that she can do no wrong.  Eugenia Lincoln, one of the sisters next door, thinks pigs should not live in houses and thoroughly disapproves of Mercy.  However, Eugenia’s sister, Baby, thinks that Mercy has quite an interesting life and would like to join in.  Mr. Watson is taking Mercy on their Sunday drive when Baby decides to join them without their knowledge.  An interesting chase ensues involving the police, a car crash, and Eugenia being displeased.  But all is well that ends well, and for Mercy Watson that means piles of hot buttered toast.
