Review

"What wrongdoer is any match for Cam Jansen, the girl with the amazing photographic memory?" ( Booklist) "An uncluttered plot, a clever heroine, clear language, and a dash of humor make for a zestful mystery."(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.

It was very exciting. It was not very exciting when the red haired man stole Poochie. There is a lot of action. I think this book would be good for third graders to read.

Format: Paperback
Cam Jansen and the mystery of the Television Dog is about a dog that has a twin. In this book there is a television dog named Poochie. And another person has a dog named Cloudy. Both of the dogs look exactly alike.
The owner of Cloudy switched them around and took Poochie. He left a note at the mall saying I'll meet you somewhere. Then you'll have to pay me to get Poochie back. Cam Jansen, Eric, and Eric's sisters were in line to get Poochies autograph.
Then Cam Jansen said, "CLICK" to remember stuff. Cam Jansen has a camera in her head. Every time she sees something weird she snaps a picture. Cam Jansen figured out that the dogs, were switched. But Cam Jansen can't figure out which is the real one. This book is a great mystery story.
At the end of the story Cam Jansen figures out the mystery. This book is about a dog that is a television *star* dog and there is another dog that looks exactly like him. You have to try to figure out which is the real one.
When you are reading this book you need to think of what's going to happen next. In the story you should look at the photos she took and see if you can tell which is the real television dog.
This book influenced me to read more mystery books. This book encouraged me to read more because it was very interesting. I liked this book so much. I hope this book can encourage more people to read mystery books about Cam Jansen.

You have to love Cam Jansen. When you're a kid, you read all of these stories about magic powers, mystery, and adventure. But everyone tells you magic can't exist. Cam Jansen manages to solve every case without the use of magic... she's a real girl. That's what makes her special and what makes you want to read more and more. Cam Jansen is a real kid superhero, and the thought that a person like her could actually exist... makes her the best kid detective ever! Our family loves Cam Jansen!

Format: Paperback
...this one is about a famous television dog named Poochie and another person who had a dog named Cloudy. The two dogs looked exactly alike because there was ink on Cloudy. The owner of Cloudy switched the two dogs and was making a note that said I'll meet you somewhere and you have to pay me some money to get him back. There's a girl named Cam Jansen in this book. She has a photographic memory. There is also Cam's friend Eric and Eric's twin sisters. They were waiting for an autograph from Poochie. Cam says, "click" when she wants to remember something. She was the one who figured out that they were switched. This book is a great book. I think you should read it!
