The Guggenheim Mystery
Publisher: Puffin Books
When a painting is stolen from the famous Guggenheim Museum in New York City and Ted's Aunt Gloria is framed for the theft, Ted, his sister Kat and cousin Salim set off across the city to find the real thief. Ted's the perfect detective, good at spotting intricate patterns and remembering tiny details. But he's certain something doesn't add up here and it's a race against time to crack the case before Aunt Gloria's sent to prison and the painting disappears forever.
The ingenious conundrum at the heart of the story keeps the pages turning, and it's impossible not to root for Ted, who must overcome his anxiety about being away from home and stepping out of his comfort zone. An exciting but heart-warming story, it's perfect for anyone who loves puzzles, crime mysteries and thinking outside the box.
Based on an original idea from Siobhan Dowd, author of The London Eye Mystery.
