Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
A good choice for beginning readers, many of whom will relate to the anxiety- provoking experience of losing something vital. (The Horn Book)

What better way to engage beginning readers in the fun of paying attention to the words and pictures in a book. (Booklist)

Children's Literature
Eric just couldn't seem to remember to bring a permission slip from his parents so he could go on a class trip to the zoo. And his friend Cam Jansen remarked that it was too bad that he would not be able to join his classmates. The permission slip was in Eric's pocket and he proudly shoed Cam that he remembered and would be going to the zoo. Alas once at school, he couldn't find it. He and Cam searched the bus, his jacket and every other logical place but to no avail. Then Cam with her photographic memory recalled what happened and the lost note is found. Everyone cheered and the zoo outing would now include everyone in the class. On the last page there is a picture of Eric and Cam at the zoo. Kids are asked to look and try and memorize what they see. The questions appear on the next page and the answers for those who are stumped are easily found by turning back to the picture. Natti and Adler make a great team with these young "Cam Jansen" stories and this is number 9 in the series. A "Viking Easy-To-Read," Level 2 Book. 2003, Viking/Penguin Putnam, Ages 5 to 7.

School Library Journal
Gr 1-2-Another appealing installment in a series of easy-to-read mysteries. Cam is helping her friend Eric find his permission note for their class field trip. After searching his pockets, the school hallway, and the bus, the young detective finally locates the note and Eric is allowed to go to the zoo. Short sentences, simple language, and plenty of white space make the story accessible. Featuring bright colors and interesting details, the appealing cartoon illustrations set the scene and provide picture clues for the text. The short chapters and well-placed moments of suspense will keep children turning pages. Some astute readers may even solve the mystery before Cam does, making the book even more attractive.-Anne Knickerbocker, formerly at Cedar Brook Elementary School, Houston, TX Copyright 2003 Reed Business Information.
