Review by Booklist Reviews

PreS-Gr. 2. Although spunky Cam (short for Camera) Jansen has an amazing memory, the "mysteries" she solves in this Viking Easy-to-Read series are always grounded in the everyday. This tenth entry, set at school, is preceded by a memory self-test that puts kids right into Cam's shoes. Then it's on to the story. It's hard to miss Jenny, the new girl in school, because she talks and talks, but before the day is out, she disappears! Is she lost? Did she go to the playground? Did she go to the wrong classroom? Cam figures it out with a clever play on words as part of the solution. The artwork is perky and colorful, and generous line spacing with just five or six words per line make the book particularly appealing to the new readers for whom it's intended.
