Three Times Lucky (Compact Disc)
The most wholesome murder mystery you'll ever read. Point of view character Mo LaBeau has one of the most memorable and endearing narrative voices on either side of the Mississippi.— Maggie, Books Inc. Children's Department Director

“With its small-town setting, quirky characters, and mystery-laden, fast-paced plot, Three Times Lucky is a wonderful novel for middle readers. That's to say nothing of 11-year-old Moses LoBeau, who is, for my money, the most winning heroine of any book -- children's or adult -- that I've read in years. Turnage deserves all the praise she's sure to get for this book, and then some. Simply a great read!”
