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? Has he spontaneously combusted? (Ted's theory.) Has he been kidnapped? (Aunt Gloria's theory.) Is he even still alive? (The family's unspoken fear.) Even the police are baffled. Ted and Kat follow a trail of clues across London in a desperate bid to find their cousin, while time ticks dangerously by ... Download and start listening now!

    " Amazing reading. Very clear reading. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Carly Waters | 2/19/2014

    " This is a 2010-2011 OBOB pick for grades 6-8. A fun thriller with a very unusual protagonist. A very quick read. "

    " I am not a big fan of books that try to get into the minds of people who don't think in the "normal" way (whatever that is) because I feel that the author might not get it right and give a false representation of that unusual way of thinking, or else give others the sense that their depiction is the way it is for everyone who thinks differently in that manner (I don't think I am being very articulate). And this book makes me uncomfortable along those lines. Also, the cataloger places it under thd Asperger's syndrome but Ted's "different" way of thinking is never categorized in the book. There is a real flatness to the story that may be the author's attempt to reflect how Ted thinks, since he is the narrator, but that kept the story from coming alive for me and my students have not responded positively to it, their comments, "it's okay" which I agree with. That said, the strength of this book is in portraying a character who thinks differently and is trying to learn to fit in (the social cues his parents and others have given him which he tries to absorb are one example) and he comes off as very competent and compassionate and just a good kid that you like and hope things will go well for.... "

    " A great mystery that ends up different from how you expect. I read this book to my hubby as he drove me to Florida over our Christmas break! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Lynn | 1/13/2014

    " Liked it. Thought it was written by the same person who wrote the Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night Time, but no. A mystery, a family story, an extremely dogged protagonist with a unique point of view. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Hannahlily | 1/12/2014

    " Solid YA mystery novel with better-than-average character development. The actual mystery is simple, but still compelling and intelligent. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Kristie Oke | 1/10/2014

    " Written from the perspective of a boy who has autism, this mystery tells the story of two siblings who try to figure out what happened to their cousin after he disappeared. I read how Ted, the main character, continually had his ideas discredited or fell on deaf ears. As I watched him process through all the clues and tidbits that the family does know, however, I began to understand how people with autism can feel about how they are treated. The manageable, short chapters and exciting plot put this on my list to read aloud to my future classes. This book will also validate any students who are autistic that are in the class and will open the eyes of other students to see the value and importance of people with autism and their ideas or ways of processing. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Robert Tabb | 1/7/2014

    " Told from the perspective of an autistic boy, the London Eye Mystery intertwines humor, mystery, and suspense. I rank it as a five star book based on the writing, content, and feeling it left me with. Truly a shame we won't be able to read more books from Dowd. "

    " I really enjoyed this classic mystery set in London. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Abby | 12/3/2013

    " Interesting. I think I'd mostly recommend to strong readers since you sort through some cool Brit slang. I liked it. "

    " It was so good! A random book that I picked up from are school library, I recommend it to anyone who likes mysteries. The characters were relatable and the plot was thrilling. I loved it! "

    " This book was ok. This boy's cousin suddenly and mysteriously disappears when riding the London Eye. After the disappearance the boy and his sister and the FBI are finding all the clues needed to find his cousin and crack this impossible mystery. "

    " It was pretty good, you know, it generally had what I like in a book, but it wasn't like Harry Potter level or anything. I definitely loved the, like, HHHHUUUUUUGGGGGEEEEEE surprise at the end... not giving anything away, just saying it's satisfying...=) "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Claire O'Brien | 10/24/2012

    " I love the voice of the narrator, Ted, who has high functioning autism. It lends a great twist and a quirky viewpoint to this simple but unputdownable mystery of a boy who goes up on the London Eye but doesn't come down again. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Sarah | 5/15/2011

    " A little gem of a book :) "

    " Fantastic audiobook--the narrator for Ted is spot-on, and I adore the character of Ted. So well-developed, so real. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Connie | 4/15/2011

    " I loved this book! In fact it's probably my favorite mystery for kids ! I'm just sorry it took me so long to get around to reading it! It could be a good book to recommend to YA's as well as J's.

    " It was a really good mysterious book. Towards the end it got a bit confusing but overall it was really good I loved it!! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Sri | 3/27/2011

    " Wow i love that ride it sounds interesting and long. Syndrome is kinda good i suppose. Especially cuz it helped them find Salim :) "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Lucy | 3/23/2011

    " This is a wonderful book - a proper mystery for children!
    I always use this as the first book when I set up my year 7 reading group each year. Almost all of the students love it, partly for the excellent mystery, but also for the lovely & true portrayal of a child with autism. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Sahana | 3/11/2011

    " I love mysteries; this was odd, because it wasn't exactly kidnapping. It felt like that throughout the whole story, but it really wasn't. That shocked me at the end. But, good book. "
