Mercy Watson—the pig who loves buttered toast—is back, to the consternation of the Lincoln sisters. Her first adventure involves the newly planted flowers in the Lincolns' yard; the second one unfolds when Mercy attends a special evening at the Bijou Drive-In. Narrator Ron McLarty creates distinctive characters and maintains each personality throughout the production. He dramatizes the conversations between cranky Eugenia and sensitive Baby Lincoln. He is curt as Animal Control Officer Francine Poulet, authoritative as Mr. Watson, and indignant as Mrs. Watson. As narrator, he maintains a steady pace and an intensity that underscores DiCamillo's humor. A.R. © AudioFile 2010, Portland, Maine [Published: MARCH 2010]
