Editorial Reviews

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)
Children's Literature - Janet Morgan Stoeke
The twists and turns in this fast-paced chapter book keep the reader guessing as well as reading. Cam has built a box camera for the science fair, only to have it stolen. Fortunately, her camera-like memory has kept a record of the many events preceding the theft. If she can unravel the facts, she hopes, the camera will reappear. She does, of course, and the second mystery of some stolen coins is resolved at the same time. A solid story, brisk and on target for the age group. 1998 (orig.

ISBN 0590200313 ¿ New to Cam Jansen, I might be expecting more of the books than they can deliver. I really do enjoy them, and realize kids won¿t necessarily nitpick the way I do. Cam and Eric think someone has followed them on their way to school with their science fair projects. Shortly after they reach school, the camera Cam made disappears and the trail leads to a coin store that¿s been robbed. Using her photographic memory and some skills of observation, Cam is on the trail to solving crimes even before anyone else knows they¿ve happened. I found it odd that the kids were on their way to school, which would sound like day time, and then chase a man into dark woods. It¿s always nice to see that Cam and Eric always get the police involved, rather than chasing criminals alone. Illustrations by Susanna Natti continue to not impress me and I think the books could do without them, since the target audience is pretty well past the picture book age. - AnnaLovesBooks
