Look out for a new book today; The London Eye Mystery by Siobhan Dowd. I missed Siobhan’s first book, A Swift Pure Cry, so I’m glad I found this one.
It’s about Ted and his sister Kat and Salim, their cousin. Salim goes on the London Eye, and seemingly disappears into thin air. Ted and Kat set about finding out what happened. Coincidence being what it is, I started reading this book the same week as both Son and Daughter, separately, went to London and went on the Eye for the first time. Luckily they didn’t disappear.
What makes this mystery so special is the fact that Ted has Asperger’s Syndrome, so thinks in his own particular way. Siobhan says she’s writing more books about Ted and Kat, so that’s something to look forward to. Having read the book as proof with a plain cover, I was really attracted to the real deal. The cover design is absolutely wonderful and it makes me want to go out and buy the book. Which is possibly what the publishers, David Fickling, had in mind.
