One of my favorite children’s authors is Kate Di Camillo. I’m particularly fond of the hilarious series she wrote for younger children, starring Mercy Watson, “the porcine wonder” who loves toast with butter!
After finishing book # 6, Something Wonky this Way Comes, I was delightfully surprised to see that two of the loveable characters from this series, Leroy Ninker and Francine Poulet, now have their own series called Tales from Deckawoo Drive. Both books, Leroy Ninker Saddles Up and Francine Poulet Meets the Ghost Raccoon, are guaranteed to put a smile on your face!
