Booklist Review

Gr. 2^-4. Cam Jansen, her photographic memory, and her best friend, Eric, are at it again. In this nineteenth installment in the series, Cam, Eric, and Eric's mother and her childhood best friend--goofy, outgoing Mabel Trent--take a boat ride around the city. Cam notices another passenger sneak a dog onto the boat. When the dog disappears, the owner is reluctant to bring in the authorities because she wasn't supposed to have her pet on board. Naturally, it falls to Cam to solve the mystery. A supporting cast of funny characters, including the dog's owner and the tour guide, should keep children giggling as they follow the mystery; and there's a visual puzzle at the end of the book to help readers decide if they, too, have photographic memories. Illustrations by Susanna Natti add to the fun. --Marta Segal


Library Journal Review

Gr 2-4-Readers are swept into the plot immediately as Cam, her friend Eric, his mother, and her annoying, but well-meaning friend embark on a boat ride. When a wealthy passenger's dog is stolen, Eric, Cam, and her photographic memory spring into action. The mystery is solved through the kids' perseverance and the thief's verbal mistakes. As with the others in the series, this title is written in short chapters with large print and numerous black-and-white full and half-page illustrations. A game at the conclusion encourages readers to test their own powers of memory. This is a natural addition to early chapter-book collections.-Christina Dorr, Whitehall City Schools, OH (c) Copyright 2010. Library Journals LLC, a wholly owned subsidiary of Media Source, Inc.
