Cam Jansen is a child detective with a photographic memory. She says 'click,' like a camera, and she basically has a snapshot in her head that she can recall anytime by just saying 'click' again. Eric is her right hand man, and in this book we meet another boy who always has to one up everyone: Billy. Billy is kind of annoying, but pretty funny.

My sister and I read through this book along with another Cam Jansen book. She liked the mystery side of this one a lot, but she didn't like the ending (...more

Recommends it for: children starting to read chapter books
This is another entertaining story in the Cam Jansen series of mysteries by David A. Adler and Susanna Natti. The mystery itself is a bit contrived and the side story about ice cream is just weird. But we've really enjoyed reading these books and our girls always look forward to another mystery featuring Cam and her friend Eric.

Our daughters loved these books.

This is a good book from a series of books that involve the character Cam Jansen. She is a child with a photographic memory. Cam uses her photographic memory to solve mysteries. It's a light hearted and fun book for kids, especially for kids who are just beginning to read chapter books. In this story Cam and her friends go to the zoo and find monkeys missing. Together they are able to solve the mystery of who took the monkeys with things that Cam has seen with her photographic memory.

Love the Cam Jansen concept!
Cam Jansen and her friend, Eric have run into another mystery! Monkeys have disappeared at the zoo and Cam has to get to the bottom of it. Who knows where those monkeys are! Will the monkeys be returned to there safe home in the monkey exhibit? Find out when you read Cam Jansen and the Mystery of the Monkey House!

I enjoyed this book. It is a wonderful addition to the Cam Jansen series.
I read this one with the kids. They said they kind of liked it but not really, hence the 2 star rating. I probably would have given it three myself. The kids in the book are 5th grade though so this is probably a bit advanced for my kids but not over their heads. It just made them want to go to the zoo.
THere were monkeys and then somebody stole them and put them in a cage and took them away. A lady bumped into the truck and Cam saw the monkeys. There was no gardening and it was a gardening truck--that's how Cam solved the mystery.
I liked how there were so many mysteries in just one book. And I just love how Cam solves mysteries with her "click."
These are cute books! They're also nice and short--perfect for those rainy days when you're bored! ;)
