I was intrigued by the book cover of The Tiger With a Sapphire Eye and I looked forward to reading it. Set in London 1938, this book follows Arabella Swain and Humphrey, her cousin as they embark on an adventure during one summer. Arabella and Humphrey are spending the summer in London under the watchful eye of Mrs McKay the housekeeper. A mystery reveals itself, at the heart of which is a tiger statue collected by Arabella and Humphrey’s grandfather and stored as an artefact at the British Museum. The race is on to find a book that, with the statue has great power. But will Arabella be able to find the book and keep the tiger from falling into the wrong hands? I found this book well-written, action-packed and full of magic and intrigue. This book slowly establishes time a place at the start before heading into the fast-paced mystery. I liked the characters, and their relationship and I think this book sets up nicely for a potential sequel. I think that this book would be of interest to children who enjoy magic mystery and action. The book flows well and at 202 pages with shorter, digestible chapters, I think that The Tiger With the Sapphire Eye could be enjoyed by readers from age 9+
