    This is a great book a real page-turner. The writer Bill Webster through Lucy the books storyteller takes you on a thrilling journey with Lucy and her friends and their heart-stopping adventures when they visit the late Gorge's pond to see his newts.
    Their adventure starts when Giselle runs her hand through Georges luxuriant lawn and comes across a severed finger. The children are now embroiled in the mystery and Gorge's ghost helps the children in their endeavor to find the murderer and owner of the severed finger, with a big twist at the end. A real bonus to this book is Mr. Websters own brilliant illustrations.
