The Lovereading4Kids comment
Shortlisted for the Nasen and TES 'Special Educational Needs Children's Book Award' 2007.
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. This title is also available in paperback.
Siobhan sadly only wrote 4 books in total before her tragic death from cancer in 2007. They were Solace of the Road, Bog Child, A Swift Pure Cry and The London Eye Mystery but her memory lives on in a Trust that has been set up in her name as well as through her writing.
The London Eye Mystery by Siobhan Dowd
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?
"A book that allows difference to be part of the plot and not a point in itself." Michael Rosen
