Mercy Watson is back and this time she's actually done something wrong as opposed to just stumbling into trouble! Eugenia Lincoln has decided that living next to a pig is no reason to not live a gracious life as exemplified by brand-new pansies planted around the house. Unfortunately, Mercy's nose detects the new flowers and, while they don't compare to hot buttered toast, Mercy decides they're tasty enough to do. When Eugenia discovers Mercy's destruction, Animal Control Officer Francine Poulet enters the picture attempting to think like a pig in order to capture Mercy. While still lots of fun, this fifth Mercy outing is not her strongest, but remains an excellent selection for early chapter book readers. Chris Van Dusen's illustrations continue to be delightful with Eugenia's gardening outfit and the rather chicken-shaped Francine Poulet as special treats.
