My name is Ted Spark. I am 12 years and 281 days old. I have seven friends. Three months ago, I solved the mystery of how my cousin Salim disappeared from a pod on the London Eye. This is the story of my second mystery. This summer, I went on holiday to New York, to visit Aunt Gloria and Salim. While I was there, a painting was stolen from the Guggenheim Museum, where Aunt Gloria works. Everyone was very worried and upset. I did not see what the problem was. I do not see the point of paintings, even if they are worth GBP9.8 million. Perhaps that's because of my very unusual brain, which works on a different operating system to everyone else's. But then Aunt Gloria was blamed for the theft - and Aunt Gloria is family. And I realised just how important it was to find the painting, and discover who really had taken it.

MEDIA REVIEWS
Faithful to Dowd's text, it's a wonderful read, full of Stevens' characteristic tight plotting, humour and inclusivity . . . A real treat * The Bookseller *
Both a tremendous art-theft whodunit and a loving tribute to the much-missed author Siobhan Dowd .... Stevens's deft, philosophical writing lends itself perfectly to a continuation of Dowd's work * Guardian *
[G]loriously inventive but still loyal to the world that Dowd created ... but what is most affecting is her ability to narrate the story through the eyes of a child with Asperger's ... his every move is brilliant observed * Telegraph *
Engaging and convincing * Sunday Times Children's Book of the Week *
A very perplexing mystery * Sun *

“Delightful and entertaining”

I loved this book! It was wonderful. I am a ginormous Robin Stevens fan, her series Murder Most Unladylike is one I just adore reading and I always look forward to the new Wells and Wong mystery. With ‘The Guggenheim... More

“A great follow-up to one of my all time favourites!”

Hats off to Robin Stevens - she has achieved the impossible by writing a more than worthy sequel to the marvellous London Eye Mystery by the much missed Siobhan Dowd. Siobhan's main character Ted Spark, who... More
