A Piglet Named Mercy, by Kate DiCamillo and brightly illustrated by Chris Van Dusen, is a prequel to the popular early-reader series about Mercy the pig.

Mr. and Mrs. Watson (ordinary people who do ordinary things) live on Deckawoo Drive, 'an ordinary street in an ordinary town.' Mrs. Watson yearns for something different ... and she gets what she wished for in the form of a piglet who shows up at their door.

The Watsons adore this new arrival and feed her warm milk. They name this unpredictable 'porcine wonder' Mercy, and find her quite out of the ordinary.
