—School Library Journal
When the Watsons decide to zip their porcine wonder into a formfitting princess dress for Halloween —complete with tiara — they are certain that Mercy will be beautiful beyond compare. Mercy is equally certain she likes the sound of trick-or-treating and can picture piles of buttered toast already. As for the Lincoln sisters next door, how could they know that their cat would lead them all on a Halloween “parade” of hysterical proportions? Kate DiCamillo’s delightful pig is back in a tale full of treats, tricky turns, hijinks, and high humor.

My 8-year-old daughter LOVES this series of books and has every one of them now, this was her last purchase. She reads them over and over and over. Great art, and the story is written well for children 4-10 to enjoy I believe and they are just funny and quirky and different than any other series of books. Look forward to more in the series.
I like how it was about Halloween and Eugenia didn't like Halloween. It's funny that Mercy went out a princess. A pig dressed up like a princess, that was hilarious. Baby was nice and did something nice for her neighbors. If you like pigs and princesses you will love this book. (Franklieigh's 3rd grader wrote this review) This is a great beginner chapter book.
This book proves to kids that you can polish a pig or better yet, dress one up and present it in a better light. My child loves it!
