Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

Grade 2-4--Cam once again uses her photographic memory and sleuthing skills in this 23rd installment in a popular series. The plot is slight. Although a missing tennis trophy from a match between two faculty members is not apt to be of high interest to beginning chapter-book readers, the fact that the chief suspect is a teacher may garner some interest. Children's greatest curiosity may be reserved for the fact that neither the text nor the black-and-white drawings give a clue as to which competitor triumphs in the rematch.--Sue Sherif, Alaska State Library, Anchorage

From Booklist

K-Gr. 2. In the twenty-third chapter book starring Cam Jansen, the young sleuth with a photographic memory, the action once again takes place at school, and the adult characters are as interesting as the kids. The tough gym teacher, Mr. Day, is missing a silver trophy he won in the staff tennis tournament. Who took the trophy from the locked display case in his newly painted office? As Cam and her friend Eric pass notes in homeroom and work on math problems, their warm teacher Ms. Benson helps them talk about the mystery, though once again, it's Cam's amazing memory ("click!") that fills in the crucial clues. The dialogue is lively, especially when mean Mr. Day barks orders ("Why are you talking? Why aren't you jumping? Don't you know the rules in this gym?"), and the clever detective work will hook new readers. Hazel Rochman

More About the Author

I write both fiction and non-fiction. I begin my fiction with the main character. The story comes later. Of course, since I'll be spending a lot of time with each main character, why not have him or her be someone I like? Andy Russell is based, loosely, on a beloved member of my family. He's fun to write about and the boy who inspired the character is even more fun to know. Cam Jansen is based even more loosely on a classmate of mine in the first grade whom we all envied because we thought he had a photographic memory. Now, especially when my children remind me of some promise they said I made, I really envy Cam's amazing memory. I have really enjoyed writing about Cam Jansen and her many adventures. For my books of non-fiction I write about subjects I find fascinating. My first biography was Our Golda: The Life of Golda Meir. To research that book, I bought a 1905 set of encyclopedia. Those books told me what each of the places Golda Meir lived in were like when she lived there. I've written many other biographies, including books about Martin Luther King, Jr; George Washington; Abraham Lincoln; Helen Keller; Harriet Tubman; Anne Frank; and many others in my Picture Book Biography series. I've been a Yankee and a Lou Gehrig fan for decades so I wrote Lou Gehrig: The Luckiest Man. It's more the story of his great courage than his baseball playing. Children face all sorts of challenges and it's my hope that some will be inspired by the courage of Lou Gehrig. I am working now on another book about a courageous man, Janusz Korczak. My book One Yellow Daffodil is fiction, too, but it's based on scores of interviews I did with Holocaust survivors for my books We Remember the Holocaust, Child of the Warsaw Ghetto, The Number on My Grandfather's Arm, and Hiding from the Nazis. The stories I heard were compelling. One Yellow Daffodil is both a look to the past and to the future, and expresses my belief in the great spirit and strength of our children. I love math and was a math teacher for many years, so it was fun for me to write several math books including Fraction Fun, Calculator Riddles, and Shape Up! Fun with Triangles and Other Polygons. In my office I have this sign, "Don't Think. Just Write!" and that's how I work. I try not to worry about each word, even each sentence or paragraph. For me stories evolve. Writing is a process. I rewrite each sentence, each manuscript, many times. And I work with my editors. I look forward to their suggestions, their help in the almost endless rewrite process. Well, it's time to get back to dreaming, and to writing, my dream of a job. David A. Adler is the author of more than 175 children's books, including the Young Cam Jansen series. He lives in Woodmere, New York.

Format: Paperback
Cam Jansen with her photographic memory was the first one to notice that Mr. Day, the gym teacher, was missing one of his prize trophies. The cabinet was locked as was the door to his office. Without a key to enter these two things, who could have stolen the trophy? The mystery keeps Cam from concentrating on her work that day. She tried and tried to focus, until while doing one of her math problems the solution to the mystery became clear. She solved the case. Now to prove who it was and why.

Everyone loves a good mystery to solve. Using her photographic memory as a super sluth tool, Cam can solve almost any mystery. I recommend Cam Jansen and the Tennis Trophy Mystery to any earlier reader that loves a good who dunnit book.
