My Impressions: This is a good book to introduce younger elementary kids to mysteries. The plot is not overly complicated and the students could solve it. It moves at a fast enough pace to keep them interested and there are no extra facts. This is important for young readers because too much information will turn them off to the genre.

Professional Review: Cam short for Camera Jansen and her faithful companion, Eric Shelton, encounter yet another mystery as they try to raise funds for charity by selling fudge bars and rice cakes. They never do explain the mystery of that unlikely combination. This time Cam spots a woman behaving suspiciously in the vicinity of a supposedly vacant house. Cam satisfies the childhood fantasy of being smarter than adults and dealing successfully with mystery and danger, and young readers seem to be able to tolerate the clicks and to suspend reality in order to marvel at her wonderful ways.

Another fix for the beginning readers who demand mystery books. Reviewed Oct. I would leave off at an exciting point so the kids can guess what will happen.
