Have Mercy! The porcine wonder returns in the second in Kate DiCamillo's exciting new series. Every Saturday Mr. Watson takes Mercy for a ride in his shiny convertible. And every Saturday, the hot-buttered-toast-loving pig wants to drive. She finally gets the chance when, one day, the next-door neighbour stows away and Mercy uses the distraction to take the wheel...But Mercy soon discovers that porcine wonders can no more drive than they can fly!

Divided into short chapters, this light-hearted new series is ideal for young readers branching out from picture books to fiction.
