When Calder Pillay travels with his father to a remote village in England, he finds a mix of mazes and mystery- including an unexpected Alexander Calder sculpture in the town square. Calder is strangely drawn to the sculpture, while others in the village have less-than-friendly feelings toward it. Both the boy and the sculpture seem out of place...and then they dissapear!!!!

Calder's friends Petra and Tommy must fly to England to help Calder's father find him. But this mystery has more twists and turns than a calder mobile caught in a fierce wind-with more at stake that meets the eye. Download and start listening now!

    " It took me longer to get into this one than the other two, possibly because I'm not very familiar with Calder's work. "

    " Parts of this were a little strange, but I really like this series. I heard something on the news yesterday about a graffiti artist named Banksy, who had done a piece of graffiti in Utah. That is one of the minor characters in this book! "

    " Another fun book in this series. The characters continue to age well and realistically and it was lovely to see Petra and Tommy's relationship evolve in this book. The change of scenery was nice as well and I found it intriguing to read about Alexander Calder's art in this context. I've always seen his art as more whimsy than art, so it was good to challenge my own thinking regarding the value of his art. "

    " Fun and quick read. Not as good as the first book. I kept waiting for a stronger connection between the artist and the mystery. "
