Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Phyllis Kennemer
Cam Jensen is back starring in three mysteries in one book. Jennifer Jensen has a photographic memory, enabling her to close her eyes and click on any scene she has previously observed. Thus the nickname "Cam," short for camera. She and her sidekick Eric Shelton are off to three weeks of summer camp. When they arrive they deposit their envelopes filled with cash for snacks in a lock box by the trail, following the written instructions. They soon discover that none of the camp personnel knows about the box and, indeed, it disappears. The first mystery. The money is quickly recovered, thanks to Cam and Eric. As the second week begins, the girls in Cam's bunk find a huge mess when they return from swimming. A raid! They vow to get even. But even with whom? First they must find the culprits. As the third week comes to a close, a storage shed is broken into. The thief has taken all of the sports equipment, prizes for the banquet, and a computer. These must be found or the last day of camp will be ruined. Cam and Eric to the rescue once again. The basic elements of mystery stories and the easy reader format make this book accessible and interesting for beginning readers. Allen's black line illustrations capture some of the most important images of the text.
