Praise for Three Times Lucky
* “A wickedly awesome tale…Mo LoBeau is destined to become a standout character in children’s fiction.”—Kirkus Reviews, starred review
* “Turnage’s lively novel features a distinctive voice and a community of idiosyncratic characters.”—Booklist, starred review
* "Here is a writer who has never met a metaphor or simile she couldn't put to good use."—Publishers Weekly, starred review
“Spunky and hilarious, eleven-year-old Mo LoBeau is one of my newest favorite heroines. Three Times Lucky will make everyone want to ride his or her own hurricane all the way to Tupelo Landing, just to join the fun.”—Ingrid Law, Newbery Honor-winning author of Savvy
"A dandy mystery...Humor sweetens the mix, making Tupelo Landing a pleasant place to stay for a spell."—Horn Book
"Mo's deadpan colloquial narration is robust and often humorous...Mystery lovers and fans of titles like Di Camillo's Because of Winn-Dixie (BCCB 6/00) or Klise's Grounded (BCCB 1/11) will definitely want to set a spell with Mo."—Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books
"The heroine of Sheila Turnage's Three Times Lucky is so plucky that young readers may wish she lived next door."—Wall Street Journal
"An irresistible Southern narrator—a literary descendant of Scout Finch of 'To Kill a Mockingbird.'"—Top 12 Children's books of 2012, Newsday
"This book will leave readers hoping for more books about Mo and her gang."—School Library Journal

Fun adventure with a quirky narrator whose equally quirky 'family' reminds us that what really makes a family is unconditional love, loyalty and resilience.Published 2 months ago by Megan Orme-Whitlock
I really liked this book and I loved the second in the series. Mo and Dale are clearly written characters with individual quirks that make them interesting but never unreal. Read morePublished 3 months ago by Mary Martino
I read this because the sequel is a Bluebonnet (Texas) nominee for 2015/2016, and I am a librarian. I have a compulsion to read sequels in order. I LOVED it. Read morePublished 3 months ago by tuppadesi
