From the Publisher
Action-packed from the seemingly innocent beginning to the satisfying end. (School Library Journal)
Children's Literature
Jennifer Jansen, better known as Cam Jansen because of her photographic memory, cannot wait to purchase the new Triceratops Pops CD. Nevertheless, when she and her friend, Eric, arrive at the store, all of the CDs are gone! But how can this be? According to the clerk, he just put six new T-Pops CDs on the shelf. Have they already sold the CDs, or did someone steal them? Wherever Cam goes, she is sure to find a mystery. Throughout the text, Alder uses great detail to represent Cam's photographic memory. For instance, at the beginning of the book, using words Cam paints a picture of an old birthday card and recites a poem that is printed in it. Cam teaches children the value of paying attention to details. Like others in the "Cam Jansen Adventures" series, this book moves quickly. Something is always happening, which makes readers want to stay alert and continue reading the book to see if they can crack the case before Cam does. 2004 (orig. 1995), Puffin Books/Penguin Group, Ages 7 to 10.

Children's Literature - Michelle H. Martin
As in the other "Cam Jansen" series books for young readers, this brief chapter book capitalizes on Cam's expert photographic memory. Cam and her buddy stumble upon a mystery at a local mall music shop while in search of a Triceratops Pops CD. The two sleuths track down the criminal who stole the six CDs, and return the merchandise to the store. As a reward, the store owner grants them a few free CDs. Providing positive role models for young readers, this text features two strong child protagonists who solve a mystery with little adult assistance. Though neither text nor illustration is of outstanding quality, Adler makes the plot complex enough to offer several possible solutions to the problem, which keeps readers guessing. This book and others in the series provide entertaining mysteries for children who are beginning to read chapter books, which could spark an interest in other, more challenging mysteries. 1997 (orig.
School Library Journal
Gr 2-4-When Cam Jansen and fellow sleuth Eric Shelton go to the local mall to get the latest Triceratops Pops CD, they uncover their next mystery instead. Cam cannot locate the CD in the music store, although one of the workers is convinced that no copies were sold. Cam and Eric put their sharp clue-gathering skills together and land a suspect, gather evidence against him, and ensure his arrest. Adler has created yet another well-structured mystery. Cam continues to be an enthusiastic detective, using all of her keen sensibilities and ingenuity to solve the case. Full-and half-page black-and-white illustrations appear throughout.-Cheryl Cufari, N.A. Walbran Elementary School, Oriskany, NY
