Product Details

Praise

With power-charged vocabulary, unexpected twists and turns, and glossy cartoon artwork, this rollicking tale is fuel-injected with humor.
—SLJ’s Curriculum Connections

The rich vocabulary of the text, the retro look of the illustrations (including the pink 1959 Cadillac they drive), and the sheer fun of the tale will delight young children.
—Childhood Education

Fans of Mercy Watson will be happy to hear Kate DiCamillo has a new book in her series.
—Detroit Free Press

The story is funny and the art is even funnier.
—Advocate, The (Baton Rouge)

DiCamillo underscores her incredible range with another Mercy Watson book, as silly and satisfying as the first.
—San Francisco Chronicle

Certain to surprise and delight young readers.
—Working Mother Magazine

Van Dusen’s larger-than-life characters and retro sensibility extend the dry humor of the situation, and his shiny, rainbow-bright gouache art shoots the energy, especially Mercy’s, right off the page. Great for emergent readers.
—Booklist

The second installment in the ‘Mercy Watson’ series, this choice is certain to produce lots of smiles and laughter.
—Syndicated Column – Kendal Rautzhan

A fresh, fun-filled must-have for those looking to spiff up beginning-chapter-book collections.
—School Library Journal

A spirited outing. . . . Chris Van Dusen’s spirited illustrations add to the unbridled fun.
—Sacramento Bee
