Mercy Watson Fights Crime (Mercy Watson Series #3)by Kate DiCamillo
Features an audio read along! Leroy Ninker is a small man with a big dream: he wants to be a cowboy, but for now he’s just a thief. In fact, Leroy is robbing the Watsons’ kitchen right this minute! But little does he know that a certain pig who loves toast with a great deal of butter is stirring from sleep. Even less could he guess that a comedy of errors will soon lead this little man on the wild and raucous rodeo ride he’s always dreamed of! Nosy neighbors, astonished firemen, a puzzled policeman, and the ever-doting Watsons return for a hilarious adventure.

My two kids love this book series by Chris Van Dusen and Kate DiCamillo. The illustrations in the book are fun, well drawn and very bright and colorful. As a parent who is also an artist I am drawn to books with well executed art work. This book was easy enough for my 2nd grader to read. This book also counted towards his school "AR" book reading program. I would recommend "Mercy Watson Fights Crime" to anyone with a young boy or girl, and also check out the other books in the Mercy Watson series, you will not be disappointed at all!
