Mercy Watson a Princess in Disguise (Kate DiCamillo)

 Mercy in a prinses costume, ready for Halloween....of course!
The neighbour is still cranky. (I will keep reading this to see if she ever lightens up!) 
Baby still has a soft spot for Mercy and sneaks around Eugenia.
Mr. And Mrs, Watson are still enamoured with their porcine wonder.
Chaos ensues....the firemen come...and it all ends with a serving of toast while everyone is gathered around the table.

Loved the illustrations in this one! Hilarious story. It is sure to be a hit with my grade 3 students.

Goodreads Summary:

Can visions of treats entice a porcine wonder to wear her princess costume? Hold on for some Halloween havoc, Mercy Watson-style!

When the Watsons decide to zip their porcine wonder into a formfitting princess dress for Halloween — complete with tiara — they are certain that Mercy will be beautiful beyond compare. Mercy is equally certain she likes the sound of trick-or-TREATING and can picture those piles of buttered toast already. As for the Lincoln Sisters next door, how could they know that their cat would get into the act and lead them all on a Halloween "parade" of hysterical proportions? Kate DiCamillo’s beguiling pig is back in a tale full of treats, tricky turns, hijinks, and high humor.
