Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Dr. Judy Rowen
"Cam" is short for "camera", a nickname earned because she has a photographic memory. On a field trip to the museum, Cam notes that the Coelophysis skeleton is missing three tailbones. No one believes her, but she and her friend Eric pedal off on their bicycles in an attempt to catch the crooks. The story is quickly paced, and the two friends involve the authorities rather than entirely taking matters into their own hands. The series certainly proves the value of paying close attention to detail; the clues that Cam uses are in the book, but I had to look back to see that they were there. 1997 (orig.
From the Publisher
"What wrongdoer is any match for Cam Jansen, the girl with the amazing photographic memory?" ( Booklist) "An uncluttered plot, a clever heroine, clear language, and a dash of humor make for a zestful mystery."(School Library Journal)
