Mo LoBeau is one of my favorite MG characters. Smart, hilarious (even when she doesn't mean to be, which is most of the time), and infinitely curious, she's always up for an adventure and never afraid to speak her mind. She sees the magic the world has to offer and never loses her nerve, even in the face of danger. If I find her inspiring as a 20-something year old, I can only imagine how much readers her own age will love her! Who wouldn't love a girl who makes observations like:
"It's hard to know what to say when your best friend serenades an amphibian. On one hand, Miss Lana likes me to be sensitive. On the other hand, the Colonel says most situations don't require my input."
I highly recommend that you read both THREE TIMES LUCKY and THE GHOSTS OF TUPELO LANDING to get the full Mo and Dale experience, but both novels successfully stand on their own as well!
Which brings us to Moses LoBeau, who is in the rural, southern style, and to Newbery winning author Turnage who deftly animates Moses' colorful and lively voice with delicacy, color, droll humor and a genius for the telling and rewarding simile. Moses and her pal Dale are once again involved in solving a mystery, and what is a mystery but an invitation and opportunity to explore, expose, weigh and judge the secrets of the residents of Tupelo Landing? There is humor, drama, pain, guilt, greed, joy and matters of great and of little weight hidden behind all of those curtains, and Moses stumbles across a good deal of it. Because she is absolutely fundamentally sound, because she is decent and generous and forgiving, and because she is nobody's fool, Moses LoBeau is the perfect guide through all of these lives.Read more ›
