My oldest child used to love Cam Jansen books. They were the first ones we listened to (on CD) on car trips when he was 4 or 5, and when we ran out of those, we read aloud the print books. But it's been a long time since Cam has visited our house, so my first thought was "is this a new illustrator?"

My 6yo son enjoyed the story and wanted me to keep reading. I liked how it was deliciously self-referential: from the jabs at the author-of-Blake-books for always saying the same thing at the beginni

I had to read this because my son is doing his first book report on it. I think this was one of those free books that you get from Scholastic books. I am not sure how my son would rate this except he kept saying this is a girl book. LOL. I found it to be little bit boring for a mystery. One of the lines in the book that I kept reread it to make sure I read it correctly. They would refer to being in line as on line or getting out of line as off line. I don't think I have heard of being in line re ...more

Blake brought this home for homework. He had to read a chapter a night and write about what happens in each chapter. It was at his reading level (1st grade) and he seemed to enjoy it. Although I don't know how well a developing reader in 1st grade can enjoy mystery. I didn't want to bash my head against the table listening to him read it to me each night (cough Junie B Jones cough) which in my book is a plus.

Cam Jansen's name and gimick is genius, but everything else about this book is incredibly boring and bland. There was hardly anything mysterious or interesting to notice in this book. This makes it a great beginning mystery book for my group of struggling third-grade readers, I suppose, but bores me to my core.

This book might have been better if I had read it as a child. I was somewhat annoyed by the 'click' thing, but it is a pretty good story mechanic. The mystery was too simple and very easy to solve. I also hated the mystery writer even though none of the characters seemed to mind him too much.

We enjoy reading the Cam Jansen mysteries together and our girls like to take the memory challenge at the end of the stories too. This is a good rainy day story and an interesting mystery.
I do not like Cam Jansen. I'm okay with the photographic memory and the "Click", but everything else about the book annoyed me. Not least of which was trying to read the name "Jim E. Winter" aloud, correctly.
