Mercy Watson Goes For A Ride illustrated by Chris van Dusen for the story by Kate diCamillo. Mercy’s parents drive a pink cadillac. 1956 was the only year General Motors’ luxury division offered a rose-coloured exterior hue. The idea of a pink Cadillac comes from Elvis Presley, who wrote a song about it and owned one. However,  Elvis’ car was a 1955 model, repainted from blue to pink.
