LoveReading View on The London Eye Mystery

Shortlisted for the Nasen and TES 'Special Educational Needs Children's Book Award' 2007.
When Salim mysteriously disappears while on a ride on the London Eye everyone is frantic and even the police are baffled. Ted has his own theories, and his own very particular way of working things out. The question is, is his theory right and will the others listen to him?

Lovereading comment:

This may only be Siobhan Dowd’s second novel but it’s clear her talent as a superb storyteller is beyond question.  Her first novel A Swift Pure Cry was shortlisted for nearly all the major awards last year and although this second novel is very different it has that same page-turner feeling to it.  It’s a beautifully written mystery set in Manchester and London and featuring two young boys, one of whom disappears on the London Eye shortly before he’s due to emigrate to the US with his mother.

The London Eye Mystery Synopsis

When Ted and Kat watched their cousin Salim get on board the London Eye, he turned and waved before getting on. But after half an hour it landed and everyone trooped off - but no Salim. Where could he have gone? How on earth could he have disappeared into thin air?
