Children's LiteratureCam is a girl wonder who is known for her photographic memory. Cam, aka Jennifer, and her friends are helping Jenny adjust to her new school. Jenny is talkative and a bit concerned about fitting in. When Ms. Dee, the teacher, advises the students to go to gym after lunch, Cam and Eric are concerned when Jenny does not show up. Off they go on a mission to find Jenny. They backtrack and look in all the usual places, but no luck. The final discovery of Jenny's whereabouts is only going to amuse those who understand language and homonyms in particular. The case is less a mystery and more a general misunderstanding. It really does not involve Cam's photographic memory, but just a good memory and logical thinking. There is an engaging exercise to test memory skills by looking at a picture in the front of the book and then answering the questions on the closing page. The illustrations by Natti are cute and make it easy to follow the story. A Viking "Easy-To-Read" Level 2 book which features short sentences and simple dialogue. 2004, Viking/Penguin, Ages 5 to 7.
