It's the best thing since buttered toast -- Mercy Watson in paperback "
"To Mr. and Mrs. Watson, Mercy is not just a pig -- she's a porcine wonder. And to the good-natured Mercy, the Watsons are an excellent source of buttered toast, not to mention that buttery-toasty feeling she gets when she snuggles into bed with them. This is not, however, so good for the Watsons' bed. "BOOM CRACK
