    The continuing success of the beloved Mrs. Murphy mystery series is given its proper due with the publication of this 20th-anniversary tale. When a local mechanic gets his odometer turned back—for good—Mary Minor “Harry” Haristeen steps in to investigate. There’s more to the crime than meets the eye, though, and sleuthing cats Mrs. Murphy and Pewter, along with faithful corgi Tee Tucker, do their level best to keep Harry out of harm’s way.

    Story

    Only recommended for those who've become attached to the cast of characters in previous books. Most of the joys of this work are in the descriptions of the animals and the glimpses into the continuing lives of old friends.

    Georgie, an almost homeless ghost, searches for a new home to haunt after his previous "landlords" disrupt his routine.

    Overall

    Shy and gentle Georgie is a beloved ghost of many an American childhood. Even though he's small and timid, he proves to have an important place in his family. He went on to star in a total of 13 books during his author's lifetime.

    Good picture books rely on the illustrations at least as much as the text to carry the story, so adapting them to an audio-only format presents challenges. The pictures which flesh out the text and the characters' personalities and the relationships between them are missing. In this audiobook, sound effects and music accompany the reading and partially compensate for the missing pictures.

    This recording is well done and would be lovely paired with a copy of the book, but the book is currently out of print. For the youngest children, see if you can find a copy of the printed book at your library. For those familiar with the pictures, listening to this brings back nice memories.
