Where Are You Going, Baby Lincoln? Tales from Deckawoo Drive, Volume 3


Don’t miss the third volume in the Tales from Deckawoo Drive series, the Mercy Watson spin-off series from New York Times best-selling author Kate DiCamillo and illustrator Chris Van Dusen

 What if timid Baby Lincoln broke free of her bossy sister and set off on an unexpected journey? Find out in this touching new adventure set in Mercy Watson’s world.

Baby Lincoln’s older sister, Eugenia, is very fond of telling Baby what to do, and Baby usually responds by saying “Yes, Sister.” But one day Baby has had enough. She decides to depart on a Necessary Journey, even though she has never gone anywhere without Eugenia’s telling her what to take and where to go. And in fact, Baby doesn’t know where she is headed — only that she was entirely happy in the previous night’s dream, sitting aboard a train with a view of shooting stars. Who might Baby meet as she strikes out on her own, and what could she discover about herself? Will her impulsive adventure take her away from Eugenia for good?


Chris Van Dusen is the author-illustrator of The Circus Ship, King Hugo’s Huge Ego, and Randy Riley’s Really Big Hit, and the illustrator of the Mercy Watson and Tales from Deckawoo Drive series as well as Mac Barnett’s President Taft Is Stuck in the Bath. Chris Van Dusen lives in Maine.
