About the Author

Sheila Turnage grew up on a farm in eastern North Carolina. A graduate of East Carolina University, she authored two nonfiction books and one picture book before she started writing about Mo LoBeau and Dale. Three Times Lucky is a Newbery Honor book, a New York Times bestseller, an Edgar Award Finalist, an E. B. White Read-Aloud Honor book, and was included on seven Best Book of the Year lists. The Ghosts of Tupelo Landing, the follow-up to Three Times Lucky, has so far garnered five starred reviews. Today Sheila lives on a farm with her husband, a smart dog, a dozen chickens, and a flock of guineas.

Reviews

"The perspicacious Mo LoBeau is at it again!. . . humor and action abound."--School Library Journal, starred review

"Just as its predecessor did, this sequel shines thanks to Turnage's deft, lyrical language and engaging characters."--Kirkus, starred review

"Turnage's ability to create convincing characters and her colorful use of language combine to make this a fresh, droll, rewarding trip to Tupelo Landing."--Booklist, starred review

"The budding detective has clearly taken to heart something her foster mother always emphasizes: 'All the world's a stage, sugar, so hop on up there.'"--Publishers Weekly, starred review

"With less real danger here than in the first book, some Scooby Doo twists, and a bona fide ghost, this is sure to please both fans and readers new to Mo, who remains as quotable as she is lovable. . . .we certainly hope there is more to come from the Desperado Detectives."--The Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books, starred review

"A rollicking sequel."--Wall Street Journal
