Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Dia L. Michels
This book is number 16 in a series of detective stories starring Jennifer Jansen, a fifth-grader who has acquired the nickname "Cam" as a result of her photographic memory. This adventure begins as Cam, her friend Eric, and Cam's Aunt Molly are waiting in line to buy tickets for a concert. A man disguised as a ghost robs the ticket counter as police are distracted by an old man who has fallen unconscious. Cam's mind "clicks" like a camera to capture the image of the ghost, and she then tracks down the thief with Eric's help. Adler combines suspense with good, light humor to unfold this mystery.
School Library Journal
Gr 2-4-This mystery carries on the tradition of the others in this popular series for early chapter- book readers. While in line for "Triceratops Pops" concert tickets, Cam witnesses a robbery but cannot identify the disguised thief. Of course, she uses her intelligence, along with her photographic memory, to solve the case and catch the crooks. Adler delivers another satisfying story that moves quickly enough for young or reluctant readers. Frequent pen-and-ink drawings capture the action and the characters' personalities. Sure to be in high demand wherever Cam Jansen stories are read.-Sharon R. Pearce, San Antonio Public Library, TX
