Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Patricia Williamson
This is a great ecological mystery that infuses green vocabulary and the story of children who are curious in one book. Cam and her friend Eric are observant and excited for the school's Green Day assembly. If the school raises enough money, then the possibility of a skylight is assured. Mr. Day, the Physical Education teacher, is collecting the coins and takes the rolls out to share at the assembly; but something goes very wrong. When the box of coins is revealed, the coins have been replaced with bricks. Does Cam have the "click" power to remember details of the day to help solve the mystery? Does her friend Eric have the will power to stick with her through the process? Will the principal allow them out of class to explore and do the detective work needed to find the answer? All of these issues loom large, and while ecology is infused it is not the main topic; but rather subordinate to the mystery of the coins. Ultimately, Cam and Eric are very successful and the mystery is solved and the dimes are found and the students get the pleasure of enjoying the sunshine from their labors. The ecology of going green is wound into the story in such a way as to be available information without being overwhelming and much of the technical jargon is clearly explained in context.
