Publisher's Summary

Mr. Watson and Mrs. Watson live ordinary lives. Sometimes their lives feel a bit too ordinary. Sometimes they wish something different would happen. And one day it does, when someone unpredictable finds her way to their front door. In a delightful origin story for the star of the Mercy Watson series, a tiny piglet brings love (and chaos) to Deckawoo Drive—and the Watsons’ lives will never be the same.

Sweet and simple! This is a fun little origin story for the Mercy Watson series, but you don't need to know anything about the Mercy Watson books for this one to be enjoyable on its own. It will have your kids wishing so hard that a piglet would turn up at their door!
