The beguiling porcine wonder turns bucking bronco to snare a robber in this hilarious new addition to the NEW YORK TIMES bestselling series.
Leroy Ninker is a small man with a big dream: he wants to be a cowboy, but for now he's just a thief. In fact, Leroy is robbing the Watsons' kitchen right this minute As he drags the toaster across the counter -- screeeeeech -- and drops it into his bag -- clannngggg -- little does he know that a certain large pig who loves toast with a great deal of butter is stirring from sleep. Even less could he guess that comedy of errors (not to mention the buttery sweets in his pocket) will soon lead this little man on the wild and raucous rodeo ride he's always dreamed of Nosy neighbors, astonished firemen, a puzzled policeman, and the ever-doting Watsons return for a new tongue-in-snout adventure about Kate DiCamillo's delightfully single-minded pig.

Industry Reviews

Mercy is back in this fun third installment of merrymaking, buttered-toast eating, and crime solving. --Kirkus Reviews The shiny, retro pictures still amuse. --Booklist

Another rollicking adventure...DiCamillo has creatively woven in the elements that a good easy reader should have: repetition, simple sentence structure, and controlled vocabulary. --School Library Journal (starred review)

Charming and colorful. --Dayton Daily News

This silly story makes my nearly 9-year-old son laugh out loud at every reading (yes, it's been requested multiple times). --Denver Post
