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.

    A reviewer

    With pride, principal Dr. Prell declares the elementary school has become a ¿Green School¿ with its can collection recycling drive to pay for skylights in order to cut back on electricity. Students have brought in cans that are given to recycling each can brings in a nickel. The school has 927 rolls of nickels.---------------- At the Green Day assembly to show the rolls of nickels to the students before it goes to the bank, the wagon holding the loot instead contains bricks. While the police investigate, photographic memory whiz, Cam Jansen begins ¿clicking¿ what she saw earlier in the day in hopes of solving who stole the coins and how. On a roll, Cam gets closer to solving the Green School theft.----------------- Targeting second and third graders, the latest Cam Jansen elementary school mystery is a fun tale starring the amateur sleuth at her photographic clicking best as she solves the case. The story line focuses on the how the crime was pulled off but equally on what young children can pragmatically do to help green the planet. The illustrations enhance a fine early elementary school relevant mystery that the audience will love clicking away while driving parents happy (for reading) and crazy (for clicking).---------- Harriet Klausner
