My head went off to one side. Even though Kat’s voice was like a supersonic boom splitting my eardrum, I was glad. Mr Shepherd says to remember to smile when you greet people, so I smiled. Her voice dropped to a hiss. Are you on your own?’. Auntie Glo – Mum – they’re not with you?’. They’re at home still?’. You didn’t give me away?’. She hugged me. ‘Go, bro. So where do they think we are?’. I stopped it by holding it down with my other hand. Not at Tiffany’s, Kat,’ I said

Cat-Women of the Moon, which Dad has in his collection, were made on low budgets with poorquality props and actors and were so bad that they were funny and had a cult following. and he tapped his temple and pointed at Aunt Gloria, grinning. big orange pot. Aunt Gloria talked a lot. She said she and Salim were ‘dead excited’ to be leaving Manchester as they’d had enough of the rain. Next he took a mobile phone out of his pocket and put it next to his plate and looked at it very seriously. Mum passed Aunt Gloria the bread.

The London Eye Mystery Teacher’s Pack By Gaby Frescura CONTENTS Introduction 3 Overview for Scheme of Work 4 Navigator 5–6 Lesson Plans 7 Assessment 39 INTRODUCTION English teachers don’t need to be told the enormous value and pleasure of reading whole texts as class readers. Fortunately, contemporary writers of fiction for young adults continue to offer fresh opportunities to enjoy literature with students.

The London Eye Mystery book. Monday, 24 May, 1. 2 . Siobhan Dowd’s suspenseful middle-grade mystery will enthrall both its target audience and their parents; I couldn’t stop reading this riveting mystery! Fans of The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time are in for a treat with another novel of a young man with autism and a drive to solve a mystery.

A five-star mystery now in paperback!Ted and Kat watched their cousin Salim board the London Eye, but after half an hour it landed and everyone trooped off—except Salim. Where could he have gone? How on earth could he have disappeared into thin air? Ted and his older sister, Kat, become sleuthing partners, since the police are having no luck. Despite their prickly relationship, they overcome their differences to follow a trail of clues across London in a desperate bid to find their cousin. And ultimately it comes down to Ted, whose brain works in its own very unique way, to find the key to the mystery. This is an unput-downable spine-tingling thriller—a race against time.★ “Everything rings true here, the family relationships, the quirky connections of Ted’s mental circuitry, and, perhaps most surprising, the mystery.”—Booklist, Starred★ “The best mysteries have at their centers gifted but very human sleuths—their abilities balanced by equally significant flaws or idiosyncrasies. This one is no exception.”—The Horn Book Magazine, Starred

There are lots of mysteries for younger readers out there that play fast and loose with basic mystery conventions, and there are more and more books that feature Asperger's heroes, again playing a bit fast and loose with clinical details. This book succeeded with me because it does a better job than most on both scores.

The mystery is of the locked room variety. Our sibling heroes Ted and Kat sift through different theories, investigate, follow clues, and have adventures tailing and questioning witnesses and suspects. There are some shortcuts taken and a few lucky hunches, but this sticks closely enough to the fair side of mystery solving that I would expect most readers to be satisfied. And, for a younger reader's mystery book this struck me as definitely superior. It doesn't have the cheats, (overheard conversations, wild guesses and hunches, clues appearing in dreams, etc.), that mar lots of junior efforts.

As to the heroes, I thought the author caught the general sense of Asperger's well enough. Ted sort of drifts in and out of the condition as the plot, narrative, and pacing require, so this isn't terribly rigorous. On the other hand it gives a fair sense of Ted being differently abled, and for a younger read I was happy with that. Ted is such a cheerful, honest and amiable companion that that shines through no matter where you come out on the Asperger's. It helps that sister Kat is also well fleshed out. Sometimes books like this revolve so much around the Ted-character that everyone else pales. Here, Kat is a real player in the narrative. Indeed, even the missing boy's parents, Ted's parents, and the police inspectors get to be characters of some weight, so you also get family drama and suspense, which adds variety and fullness to the tale.

This is a bit longish but I was surprised at the fast pace that was maintained. Scenes change quickly and the investigation progresses apace, with a nice balance of action bits and thinking about the case. It felt like this would be an attention holder.

So, I imagine that declaring that a book is better than expected seems like faint praise, so let me be clear that I thought this was a top drawer young reader mystery and an entertaining find.

The London Eye Mystery
What intrigue, fun, and amazing depth in The London Eye Mystery by Siobhan Dowd! What's the book about? Aunt Gloria and her son, Salim, come to London to say goodbye to Ted and Kat's family before heading for a new life in New York. The sisters and kids decide to take in a final day of sightseeing. Salim ends up on the Eye by himself but he never gets off! What happened to Salim?

Told in first person point-of-view by Ted, a 12 year old on the autism spectrum, this book is a gem for many reasons. As a read-aloud or for kids in upper elementary and older, this book is loaded with enough material to satisfy readers and teachers alike. All the characters in the book are well-developed. Themes abound. The clues are intriguing, the mystery is a real page turner, and the shattering reality of a missing kid is not glossed over.

The portrayal of the thoughts and actions of a kiddo on the autism spectrum is a primary accomplishment of this book. Seriously, that is no mean feat. Ted talks to us about his brain with its different operating system, relates his never-ending and complex thoughts on weather systems, and lets us know when he's stressed, including habitual hand shaking and occasional banging and kicking walls. Poor Ted. I'd bang walls in his position, too. If ONLY his family would listen to Ted!

Ted's sister, Kat, is a tweener in rebellion against her mum, secretly smoking and often lying, and cursing several times in the book. While reading this aloud, I left out most of those words. On the other hand, I appreciate the author's authentic description of Kat's struggle to find her way while grappling with agonizing guilt over Salim's disappearance.

As a special ed teacher, I'd use this book to develop empathy among neurotypical learners for those whose brain are on IOS-Autism. Kids on the spectrum are at risk for bullying and this book would be a terrific tool for countering those prejudices. The London Eye Mystery could also validate kids who have been made aware of their diagnosis of ASD.
I was grieved to discover that Siobhan Dowd passed away in 2007 at the age of 47. She had devoted much of her life's energy to "tak[ing] stories to children and young people without stories." In the days before her death, she established The Siobhan Dowd Trust, a worthwhile project to supply books to those who otherwise couldn't access them. Siobhan Dowd definitely achieved her goal of giving a voice to kiddos like Ted. I encourage you to read the book and check out her foundation, where all royalties and funds from overseas sales provide hope for the voiceless.

This was a pleasure to read since I enjoy mysteries for all ages, and I also love London settings. Ted and his sister try to figure out how their cousin, Salim, disappeared when riding the London Eye. All their theories, interactions with others, and travels about town to solve this mystery kept me engaged.

Ted is a very interesting and amusing main character. He has Asperger's Syndrome and has trouble deciphering emotions. However, he is very clever at deciphering the clues that turn up along the way in the search for his lost cousin. I think Ted is a great main character in that he shows how a person with a mental disorder thinks differently yet has the abilitiy to see things from a unique point of view.

Any time you can get 10 year olds to read and not want to put down a book, that's a winner. My kids rated this book and gave it five stars.

This mystery kept me in enjoyable suspense throughout. The author drops clues as well as false leads in a layered plot based on a boy's disappearance. Setting this book above the ordinary is the touch of humanity brought by seeing the world through the young, autistic narrator.
I listened to the 6 hour audiobook, which was very well read.
The book is for tweens and for adults who enjoy juvenile fiction. Other than some infrequent mild profanity, the book is quite clean.
