Children's LiteratureJennifer 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.
