This is another fun story about Mercy Watson the pig. It seemed more like the first book (which I liked) in that Mercy is very much a pig with few human attributes or motivations. In this story, as in the first book, Mercy ends up saving the day simply by being herself. ( )

That buttered-toast-loving pig with a penchant for trouble, Mercy Watson, whose adventures began in Mercy Watson to the Rescue and continued in Mercy Goes for a Ride, returns for her third adventure in this entertaining chapter-book. Awakened in the middle of the night by the sound of the toaster being moved - surely a sign that toast is being made! - Mercy surprises a pint-sized burglar named Leroy Ninker, who dreams of being a cowboy. Needless to say, Mercy's actions (however inadvertent) save the day...

I enjoyed Mercy Watson Fights Crime quite a bit, finding it (unlike many sequels) every bit as entertaining as its predecessors. Mercy herself is a winsome character who, with her inadvertent and unconscious participation in various human interactions around her, reminds me a bit of Judith Kerr's Mog (of Mog the Forgetful Cat). Coming from a Mog fan, that is, of course, high praise. With vividly colorful illustrations that add to the fun, an amusing tale of a toast-obsessed pig and a would-be burglar who longs to be a cowboy, and a cast of appealing secondary characters, many of whom appeared in the previous two entries in the series, this third Mercy Watson story is a winner!

The third installment of the Mercy Watson series recounts a night in which Mercy, the Watson's beloved pet pig, stopped a burglary. The whole story is soaked in humor because Mercy is unaware that her actions are actually saving the day because she is in pursuit of toast, and her actions happen to correlate just right to stop the burglar. The whole town gets involved in this unusual and hilarious case, ending with Mercy being a neighborhood hero. I'm not sure if this book would be considered fantasy because while many of Marcy's actions are unlikely, none are false for a pig. I think that this book is an okay portrayal of fantasy, as the events and themes are not too far reaching, but the books main purpose is to entertain and be comedic, which I feel it does very well. I think this would be a good early chapter book to have in my classroom library because it's engaging and simple enough for students to explore on their own, but it would also be a fun one to read for entertainment as a whole class.

The third installment of the Mercy Watson books, Mercy is back at it, this time stopping a thief from stealing from the Watsons! Mercy saves the day (unintentially! all she wanted was some buttery toast!) and is rewarded with her favorite treat at the end. This book is short and sweet and can easily be read by 7 yrs old and up! ( )

In the third book of the Mercy Watson series, Mercy the pig saves the day by catching the thieve who tries to steal from the Watson house. Unintentionally, Mercy catches the thieve by searching for the buttery toast she think someone is cooking. Throughout the story, the mean sister Eugenia think Mercy is at fault because pigs are not house pets, but once again Mercy becomes a hero and is rewarded at the end with toast. This book in the series is good for children because it teaches them that anyone can make a difference in helping others. ( )
