Mercy Watson: Something Wonky This Way Comes is an enjoyable finale to the Mercy Watson series. What happens when Mercy Watson goes to the drive-in theater for the first time? Adventure!

I enjoyed all of the Mercy Watson series, as did my just turned 7 year old daughter. I liked DiCamillo's witty story and the illustrations that further bring it to life. I highly recommend reading the stories in order as the characters from the earlier books are used throughout the series.

My daughter enjoys reading these books to herself and out loud to me. They fill the gap between traditional early readers and early chapter books. These books are chapters books, however, the vocabulary is not overly complex nor too simple. These are confidence building books for children who are bored with traditional early readers, what to read chapter books, like some of their peers, but are not quite ready to take that leap. They are enjoyable, fast pace books that are delightful to read out loud or to yourself.
