I think Three Times Lucky is a classic! It is one of those books that everyone should read at least once. The characters are not stereotypical, and they are worth getting to know. There is a murder, but it is not graphic at all. There is also a father who drinks too much, but the children learn how to deal with him.
This book is not for kids. We wonder why kids are the way ther are. If you wanna teach your kids to be abusive and drunks and call others names. Yeah read it but if your a parrent who cares what there kids take in. Than dont allow it. I cant believe the school system allows this. This is why my kids will be home schooled.
A beautifully written, thoughtful adventure/mystery story. While there are some mature themes (murder mystery, alcoholic/abusive parent), they are handled tactfully. Kids will love the main character Mo, her sidekick Dale, and the whole cast of characters in Tupelo Landing.
