Siobhan Dowd opened a trust for disadvantaged children with the aim to export the habit of reading to children with learning disabilities, low socioeconomic status, and overall children with no support at home.  The year she died, 2007, The London Eye Mystery" was published as a way to tell the story of a boy with Apsbergher syndrome, and the way that his unique perceptual and analytical skills help him solve the mystery of where is his first cousin, Salim.  As with every story by Dowd, the purpose of writing this story is to encourage us to see things from a different perspective, and to teach the lesson that, although Ted has a condition that could prevent him from learning in the traditional way, it "all depends on how you see things in your own accord". Hence, this is a clear message for us to never to give up on others who may not share the same abilities as us, but they have their very own, compensating ones.
