Description

Cam Jansen's trip into the big city promises to be exciting, and Cam's mother has brought along a video camera to record the action. When a scary snake frightens a man on the steps of the library, Cam's mother accidentally tapes the funny scene. But later, a man in a red sweatshirt steals the video camera. Cam thinks there might be a connection between the two events-and she's going to use her photographic memory to prove it! A popular series, the Cam Jansen books encourage critical thinking skills.

Professional reviews

"[Editor's Note: The following is a combined review with CAM JANSEN AND THE BIRTHDAY MYSTERY.]--Cam Jansen, the main character in this popular adventure series for kids, is a plucky girl with a photographic memory--a gift she uses to solve mysteries. In these two stories, Cam attempts to find solutions to different puzzles confronting her family. Who stole her mother's video camera (and why?), and who robbed her grandparents in the airport parking lot? Christina Moore does a good job creating a spunky, kid-like Cam whom she backs with a believable cast of supporting characters. Moore also paces these stories well--building a sense of drama without overdoing it--and fully engaging young listeners. Two more satisfying mysteries for the younger detective set. J.C.G.
