One night she decides to sneak into Mr. and Mrs. Watson’s bed so she doesn’t have to be alone. Unfortunately, the weight of 2 adult humans plus one pig almost casues the bed to fall through the floor! Will Mercy be able to save the day?

Genre: free choice chapter

Grade Level: 1-4

Readers who will like this: Children who like funny stories, beginning readers

Rating/Response: 5 The story and the pictures were both very funny. I read this book with a young girl during my immersion experience and she loved it! This book has just the perfect amount of silliness and is a great first chapter book.

One question you would ask before a read aloud: What do you think life would be like if you had a pig in your house?
