Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal
Gr 1-3-The girl with the photographic memory has planned a surprise 40th birthday party for her parents (whose birth dates are close together) at their own house. They arrive home after an outing and their guests barely have a chance to greet them when Mrs. Jansen's parents call to say that they have been robbed at the airport. Cam, her friend Eric, and her parents all go to help them. Granny and Gramps explain that a taxi driver stole their suitcases and two presents. The police are called to investigate, but Cam remembers seeing a van in the parking lot filled with luggage. Why would someone going on a trip leave luggage there, she wonders? She takes her father back to their car and they wait for the driver of the van, who returns with another load of suitcases. His game is up. This is an exciting mystery book with great black-and-white illustrations. Another surefire adventure.- Wendy S.

My daughter loves all the Cam Jansen books. Great for 2nd or 3rd grade I think.

I will rate this book 5 stars because this book is very exciting. It is good, and I will tell you about this book. When I was reading this book, it was getting very boring when they were talking about what they were going to do. So I kept reading, and it started to get very exciting. Then they were having a party for Cam's parents when a phone call came. Cam's father answered. It was Cam grandparents, and they said that they got robbed. So their parents hurried to the car and Cam and Eric hid in the back of the car. Read the book so you can find out.
