Action-packed from the seemingly innocent beginning to the satisfying end. (School Library Journal)


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 fans you will not be disppointed. This is another good Cam Jansen mystery. Cam and her family are picking up her Aunt Mary from the airport after her trip to France. At the same time they are having a suprise party. Of course everything does not go as planned. Aunt Mary can't find her bag, the suprise party is about to be ruined, and a little girl from the flight is missing. Aunt Mary knows that she was on the plane, but the little girl can not be found anywhere. Cam uses her detective skills to figure out where the missing girl has gone. A hint - your first guess may not be right. Mine wasn't! Cam Jansen books are excellent for beginning readers and also for parents who read alot of stories (like I do) to children. The fact that the main character is a girl is lost on children because her name is "Cam" so even my boys like her books. I can't wait until the next one comes out!

Format: Paperback
I can't say enough, how impressed I am with this series from the books I've read so far. The writing is good, the illustrations artistic and the mysteries are varied from real crimes such as robbery to family mysteries such as missing items. Adler does well at writing a mystery for this young age which takes some thinking to solve, may surprise readers with the ending, and yet leaves clues behind with the possibility of solving it. Cam's photographic memory which we are told is scientifically called "eidetic" is a unique quality for a mystery sleuth. Another one well-read.
