  3. One day, there was a auntie and her child they were about to go to America but before they went they both went to their friends house. When they arrived Salim told cat and ted that he wanted to go to the London eye so they waited in line and realised that it would take half an hour to grab a ticket and half an hour to get a ride. Luckily but strangely a steranger came to them and gave them a free ticket. Later, Salim went on the London eye but when he supposed to come out he was not there . After that, cat and ted told aunt Gloria and mum about Salim Dad called the police and told them about Salim the police said to keep phoning him or wait at home so they went home. Later on, cat and ted ran upstairs and made up theories. After that, they said that they want to go shopping but dad had to go so then they said to him out side that can we go on the London eye dad let them then they went on but nothing happened.

    My favourite character is Salim because hes the one missing which makes him interesting.

    I would recommend this book to people who like detectives because its like one.

  6. Summary
    Once there was a boy named Salim and his mum named Aunt Gloria. One day they came over to there family’s house. Their name was Ted, Kat and their parents. Salim was talking to Ted about how weather works and lightning. Then Ted asked Salim a question ‘Have you ever been on the London eye. Salim reply’s no I haven’t. Then Ted had an idea he said we can go to the London eye and you can have a ride so the Salim agreed and everyone got ready to go.They finally got there but they realised that they didn’t have enough tickets but a strange man came and gave one ticket and said I am afraid of heights you have it. Ted was so happy and said thank you so much and then Kat was the one In charged but she was to busy on her phone. So Salim had a go by his self so he went Ted kept an eye on the box he was in. When the came back down Ted couldn’t find him but he asked Kat to help but they couldn’t find him so they waited for everyone to leave but they still didn’t find him so they called the police.The police said don’t worry he will come home soon just go home and don’t stress.They went home and even though the police said don’t stress that is what they did. Aunt Gloria was in tears she couldn’t stop crying.Aunt Gloria said to Kat it is all you fault then Kat started crying and ran in the kitchen. Ted’s mum said go upstairs so Ted did. Then Kat came upstairs and then I started calming her down to not stress then she finally calmed down so they started talking about what happened and how it was strange.Then 2 hours later the police came and said we thing we found Salim and he is very confused can someone come with me so dad went with them. We were all waiting for him and he finally came back and said it wasn’t Salim it was a poor boy who was confused and he had dirt under his nails I he passed away. Aunt Gloria was in tear because she thought that it was her boy. It was bed time so mom told us to go to bed and we went I was talking to Kat and she said what could have happened I don’t know but let’s talk about it tomorrow. It was the next morning and we told dad if we could go out he said ok but mom was scared she was going to lose us but dad said I will go with the to keep an eye on them. We were out the Kat wanted to go shopping so I let her. Then it was my turn so I wanted to go see is Salim was at the London eye dad replied is this about Salim. I said yes I want to she what happens to him and how he felt when he was on there. Dad said ok let’s go I had a look but he wasn’t there so we all went back home and had cookies 🍪 but know one wanted to eat them but dad mum said go upstairs and play so me and Kat went I am still wondering what happens to Salim.

  7. I predict that maybe when Salim went on the London eye he went around 3 times then Cat and Ted get bored at staring at the London eye so they decide to tell their mum , but whilst heir talking Salim came of the London eye.

    The main characters are Ted, Cat , Salim , Mum ,Dad and aunt Gloria.

    I would recommend this book to children because it is very interesting and really fun to read as it also help you in your learning.

  10. My favourite character was cat because she is very clever and she is very smart she is very good at solving problems that happen and she is a good very good character in the book.

  12. Summary
    One day, there was an Auntie called Gloria with her son Salim. They both wanted to visit ted and cats home before they go to America. So they both came. Salim wanted to go to the London eye so they agreed. They went on the underground train 🚇 to the north so they get to the London eye. This was weird because Cat was sitting next to Salim. We were gone to buy the tickets. Suddenly a creepy man handed a ticket to Salim cause he has never been on the London eye 🎡. So, Salim accepted the ticket and went on. Cat and ted went and followed the capsule until the capsule reached the end of the ride. They saw everyone coming out of the same capsule of Salim went in , but guess what! He wasn’t there? So, they ran back to there house. There was mom and aunt Glo sitting in the living room. We told mom and she and aunt Gloria was shocked. She started to cry. Later on, dad came home and mom told him EVERYTHING!!!
    It was so embarrassing. So the next day. Dad called the police to check the security system/ camera from the capsule from where Salim was in. But they found no trace of him. We waited and until, cat went into the kitchen to grab some cookies. When she came back and put them on the coffee table no one touched the cookies 🍪 🍪🍪🍪🍪. Next day, the police came to OUR house to talk to *us*. After about 2 hours later they came, they asked us some questions about Salim. After the half an hour of extreme Q&A ( questions and answer) , they called dad and told him to come and look at this Asian boy in a slab dead!! Aunt Gloria was shivering because she was worried if this was her own son. So, when dad came back he said it wasn’t Salim.
    Sorry if I haven’t finished it I forgot the rest.
    *us* – it means only mom and aunt Gloria.

  13. Summary:
    The main characters are Ted, Cat, Salim, Ted’s dad, Ted’s Mum, and Auntie Gloria. Auntie Gloria and her son, Salim, are going to New York because she has a new and better job there. On the way to New York, they have to go to London, where Auntie Gloria’s sister, also Ted’s and Cat’s mum, lived. When Auntie Gloria and Salim were there, they wanted to visit a landmark of London, before they went on the plane to New York. Ted and Salim’s family couldn’t decide which landmark to go to, as everyone suggested going to a different landmark than the other. Finally, they agreed with Salim- going to the London Eye. The day came. Auntie Gloria and Ted’s mum decided to stay in a cafe and gave the money for their children’s tickets to Cat. Ted’s mum told her she was in charge of Ted and Salim. When the children go to the London Eye, they see an enormous queue. A man goes to them and offers them a free ticket. He tells them that he bought a ticket but changed his mind on going on the London eye. The ticket was for only one person- Salim, but he had to go alone. If they agreed, it would save them half an hour. So, they agreed.
    The children waited a long time but Salim didn’t come out of any of the pods of the London Eye. He had vanished from his pod. Ted’s mum, dad, and auntie were very angry. They organised search parties but Salim was nowhere to be found (yet).

    I think Salim lifted a floorboard and hid underneath and secretly took another ride.

    My favourite character is Ted because he thinks very logically and he sometimes thinks about random things that are sometimes funny to me.

    I would recommend this book to someone who likes reading detective stories because someone who doesn’t like detective stories won’t enjoy this one.

  14. The summary of the story is when a boy called saleem stayed with Ted and cat . They went to the London eye and a stranger offered them one ticket. Saleem went on the he didn’t come out . Ted and Cat couldn’t find him. Gloria , their mum ,Ted and Cat all went home .They called the police . They said there is a boy in a morg and one lost on a train. They went out to eat pizza to cheer them up.

    I think what happened to saleem was when he was getting if the London eye he saw something and then it took him somewhere else or someone took him. I know this because in the story it says when everyone was coming out of the eye , there was no sign of Saleem. This means Saleem is missing.

    My favourite character is Aunt Gloria because she makes me laugh.
    I would recommend this book to all my friends and cousins because I’ll know they’ll like it.

  15. Summary

    In London there is a family of 4 who are Cat, Ted, Mum and Dad and they find out that there family members from Manchester are coming to visit them for the last time as they are going to America because Salim’s Mum has a high quality job found in America. One morning, the whole family where sitting round the dinner table asking each other where to go for the afternoon and they decided to ask Salim where they will go as he was the guest so he wanted to got to the London Eye. When they got to the London Eye Cat’s Mum said to her to buy 5 tickets so we could go on the London Eye and they did as they were told and the found there way to the queue but this strange looking man wearing a brown leather jacket approached them and said “ I only have one ticket so if one of you want to go onto the London Eye I would give you the ticket .”
    After hearing this they decided to give the ticket to Salim because Cat and Ted had went on the London Eye many times. When the ride ended Salim was nowhere to be found. When they called the parents the parents called the police. The police said to go home and just stay calm.
    They could not calm down and were extremely scared for Salim and Cat told the truth so she got into a vast amount of trouble with everyone. The police said they found someone who follows the description of Salim but said that someone had to visit the moor because they were not alive. Aunt Gloria got very scared that her son was dead. So Dad volunteered to go and check if it was Salim that was dead in the moor. After Dad came back he gave everyone the news of that the body was a poor Asian kid who had not survived the night. Dad wanted to know more information about the dead Asian kid who was in the moor so asked the police to get more information about the dead Asian boy. Aunt Gloria’s husband came and they had some sort of love hate relationship between each other so the supported each other that they could find their son. The next day nobody had eaten properly and calmed down about the absence of Salim so to calm down they went to a pizza restaurant and ordered three pizzas, that day nobody mentioned the absence of Salim and talked as if nothing had happened to them.

  16. I predict that Salim was tricked into riding the London Eye by the random stranger who wore a brown leather jacket and was smoking.

    My favorite character is Ted because he is always curious about things and never gives up.

    I would recommend this book to 10 or above because it has an interesting plot and makes you want to read more about the book.

  17. Questions:

    I predict that Salim was kidnapped by the strange peculiar looking man who had handed them the free ticket for the London eye.

    My favourite character would be Ted because he is a very interesting person and is extremely curious about the absence of Salim.

    I would recommend this book to ten and over because the interesting plot make people want to find out what will happen to Salim in his absence.

  18. Summary:

    In London a boy called Ted were having news about their Aunt who is called Aunt Gloria is moving to America with her son Salim because she found an opportunity to get a high quality job so she wanted to stay with Ted, Kat and their parents for a few nights. When everyone’s finds out about this Ted’s Dad did not like the idea of them staying with them because he calls Aunt Gloria, Aunt Hurricane because he often says that she makes trouble wherever she goes. When they come Salim wants to see all the iconic land marks in London. Ted and Kat suggest to Salim that he should go to the London eye as they have been there many times before. When they go the parents go in the coffee shop while the kids get the tickets. Kat was in charge of them because she was the oldest out of them three. A strange, peculiar looking man approaches them and asks if they would like a free ticket and Kat thought they should take it as for she thinks her parents and Aunt would like to save money on the tickets. The weird man only gave them one free ticket for the London eye so they thought they should give the ticket to Salim as he had never been on the London eye before. When the ride ended Salim was nowhere to be found in any of the pods on the London eye. When they told the parents they called the police and the police gave them three options and they chose to go back as option one. They could not calm down and were extremely scared for Salim and Kat told the truth so she got into a vast amount of trouble with everyone. The police said they found someone who follows the description of Salim but said that someone had to visit the moor because they were not alive. Aunt Gloria got very scared that her son was dead. So Dad volunteered to go and check if it was Salim that was dead in the moor. After Dad came back he gave everyone the news of that the body was a poor Asian kid who had not survived the night. Dad wanted to know more information about the dead Asian kid who was in the moor so asked the police to get more information about the dead Asian boy. Aunt Gloria’s husband came and they had some sort of love hate relationship between each other so the supported each other that they could find their son. The next day nobody had eaten properly and calmed down about the absence of Salim so to calm down they went to a pizza restaurant and ordered three pizzas, that day nobody mentioned the absence of Salim and talked as if nothing had happened to them.

  19. 1 I think Saleem didnt go into the pod and a different boy waved goodbye to someone behind Cat and Ted. I think Saleem went back to Manchester or went to look around London beacuase humans cant vanish
    2 My favourite character is Ted as he is very curious
    3 I would recommend this book to friends and family because it’s very interesting and a good adventurebook. Also it has a good plot with cliffhangers at the end of every chapter.

  20. My favourite character is cat because she is very smart at solving this case.

    I would recommend this to 8-9 because there is some hard words also the will not understand them.
