    great for readers in transition.

    if your young reader is moving from picture books to those with more words and few if any illustrations, MERCY is just the ticket. Wonderful stories in short chapter form, illustrations bordering on genius. I can't say enough

    Hilarious & Highly Entertaining

    Mercy Watson and all the characters in these books are so funny and enjoyable to read. Parents will have a great time lending the voices to these hilarious characters when reading to younger children, and early readers will enjoy this great transition from picture book to early chapter book. We got this book when my son was almost 6 and it was a perfect book as his reading skill progressed. Once you read one Mercy Watson story, you'll want to read all the rest.

    Very entertaining!

    My daughter received this book for her 6th birthday and now we have the entire Mercy Watson series. This book is entertaining for both children and parents. The story is simple enough for a 6 or 7 year old to follow. The vocabulary is appropriate for grade level with a few difficult words thrown in. Enough to challenge, but not overwhelm. The characters are funny. We love Mercy.

    great starter chapter book

    My son is a pre-reader and really enjoys chapter books. This series is so enjoyable for both of us - he loves the story and the illustrations, I love the pig! I totally recommend this to readers and non-readers.
