Overview

No mystery is too great for super-sleuth Cam Jansen and her amazing photographic memory!

Mysteries follow super-sleuth Cam Jansen everywhere she goes...even to the school library. It is a big day at Cam's school. The governor, who is running for president, is visiting for the dedication of a new library. Police officers, Secret Service agents, photographers, and news reporters are all there to hear the governor speak when . . . bang! A loud sound like a gunshot startles everyone during the ceremony. Was it really a gun, or a noisy cover for a crime? Click along with Cam as she teams up with the Secret Service to solve the mystery.

The Cam Jansen books are perfect for young readers who are making the transition to chapter books, and Cam is a spunky young heroine whom readers have loved for over two decades.

Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Norah Piehl
Cam (short for "The Camera") Jansen has a photographic memory, a talent that serves her particularly well for solving the many mysteries that have come her way. In this, her twenty-sixth adventure, Cam goes to a school assembly and winds up investigating a jewelry theft. The governor (who is running for President) comes to Cam's school to dedicate a new library donated by a wealthy couple, the Pearls. During a frightening incident that distracts the secret service agents, Mrs. Pearl's valuable necklace disappears. Can Cam "click" her way to solving the mystery before the thief can make his getaway? The enduring appeal of this series owes much to Cam's winning personality and to the non-threatening, involving mystery plots, which make Adler's series a perfect introduction to the mystery genre. Susanna Natti's expressively comic illustrations further contribute to the story's gentle nature—the book even includes a memory game that allows budding sleuths to match wits with Cam herself.
