The Guggenheim Mystery

A New York art theft has the police stumped. Can Ted solve the crime? Sometimes it takes an unusual brain to unravel a mystery. (Think of Sherlock Holmes, for a start.) Step up Ted Spark, who has Asperger’s and is twelve years and 281 days old. When his cousin Salim vanished on the London Eye, Ted cracked the case. Now he’s on holiday in New York, visiting Salim and Aunt Gloria. But then a painting worth £9.8 million is stolen from the world-famous Guggenheim Museum. Ted doesn’t understand art; he couldn’t care less about the painting. But what if he’s just the right person to find it?
