Mercy Watson Thinks like a Pig

(3) 1-3 Illustrated by Chris Van Dusen. Mischievous pet pig Mercy eats grumpy neighbor Eugenia Lincoln's pansies. Furious, Eugenia calls in animal-control officer Francine Poulet to find and capture the pig. A spirited search ensues, as Poulet tries to "think like a pig." As usual, the cheerful gouache illustrations portray Mercy's comical adventures, as well as the Watsons, the neighbors, and Poulet, with great humor.
