The amiable Mercy Watson takes an automobile ride she'll never forget in the second tale of an ebullient first chapter-book series by Kate DiCamillo and Chris Van Dusen

The amiable Mercy Watson takes an automobile ride she'll never forget in the second tale of an ebullient first chapter-book series by Kate DiCamillo and Chris Van Dusen. Mr. and Mrs. Watson's porcine wonder, Mercy, loves nothing more than a ride in the car. It takes a fair amount of nudging and bribing and a "You are such a good sport, darling" to get the portly pig out of the driver's seat, but once the convertible is on the road, Mercy loves the feel of the wind tickling her ears and the sun on her snout.

Like its predecessor, Mercy Watson Goes for a Ride is an amusing tale sure to please children who are just .

Like its predecessor, Mercy Watson Goes for a Ride is an amusing tale sure to please children who are just getting started with chapter-books. Mercy is a headstrong heroine, one with whom many willful young children will identify, and her (mis)adventures make for entertaining reading. The accompanying artwork, done in gouache by Chris Van Dusen, is vibrantly colorful and adds to the sense of madcap fun. Recommended to anyone who enjoyed the first Mercy Watson book, and to young readers who enjoy somewhat silly stories with a great sense of humor.

Mercy Watson is a series of chapter books written by Kate DiCamillo and illustrated by Chris Van Dusen. Mercy Watson Goes for a Ride was a Theodor Seuss Geisel Honor Book in 2007 -one of three runners up for the Geisel Award. Six Mercy Watson books were published from 2005 to 2009 by Candlewick Press of Somerville, Massachusetts. Mercy Watson to the Rescue (2005). Mercy Watson Goes for a Ride (2006). Mercy Watson Fights Crime (2006).

CHRIS VAN DUSEN illustrated the first book in the Mercy Watson series, MERCY WATSON TO THE RESCUE. So when I read this story about a wild car ride, I couldn't wait to get started. He is also the author-illustrator of DOWN TO THE SEA WITH MR. MAGEE, A CAMPING SPREE WITH MR MAGEE, and IF I BUILT A CAR. He says, "I have four brothers (no sisters!), and cars were a big part of my upbringing. I made the Watson convertible a 1959 because I love old cars with lots of chrome, fins, and style. It was also great to visit these characters again.

The amiable Mercy Watson takes an automobile ride she'll never forget in the second tale of an ebullient first chapter-book series by Kate DiCamillo and Chris Van Dusen.Mr. and Mrs. Watson's porcine wonder, Mercy, loves nothing more than a ride in the car. It takes a fair amount of nudging and bribing and a "You are such a good sport, darling" to get the portly pig out of the driver's seat, but once the convertible is on the road, Mercy loves the feel of the wind tickling her ears and the sun on her snout. One day the Watsons' motoring ritual takes an unexpected turn, however, when their elderly neighbor Baby Lincoln pops up in the backseat in hopes of some "folly and adventure" – and in the chaos that ensues, an exuberant Mercy ends up behind the wheel! Soon there's a policeman on her tail, a struggle for the brake, and a blissfully airborne Mercy. Of course, it's nothing that an extra helping of buttered toast can't fix!

These are adorable chapters books. These are great for kids and students who are transitioning from early readers to chapter books because the chapter are short.

Really cute story. I love this media - great quality pictures and paper weight (I know this sounds silly) while getting a reader to progress.

I actually purchased 4 sets of each of the Mercy Watson series books 1,2,3 and anxiously await till # 4 comes out. I purchased a set for each set of grandchildren, one set each for our friends grandchildren for the Christmas/Hanukkah holidays. It captured the interest of one of our grandchild who has dyslexia among other problems and he is finally, at 11 years old, beginning to read. This story was so funny and interesting that he was anxious to read to us. Mercy's adventures are hilarious and the neighbors are so funny. Also, a child can relate to the love a family gives a pet, in this case, a pig. A delightful children's story that all should read with their children. Mrs. E. Newman

I returned all of these books-- I thought the characters wre strange and the story lines uninteresting.

I don’t know what it is about these books but my kids love reading them. I love that my four year old can follow a longer storyline

Beautiful illustrations and a fun story. A great introduction into chapter books. We have loved borrowing these from the library for years and finally decided to add the set to our home library.
Very cute, easy read. My 4 year old enjoys these as a bed time story. I find them amusing as well. We read one book a night and then start over again.
