In a somewhat startling coincidence, this is set in Binky's Department Store, and we started it just after we finished reading Binky the Space Cat! But Binky's Department Store isn't owned by a space cat; instead, it's owned by a woman who loves the color green and who can't seem to hire competent staff for her Returns Department. The plot has holes that you could drive a dump truck through if it were written for adults, but it's written for young kids, so I'll willingly suspend my disbelief. Ca ...more

I love Cam Jansen stories. I remember reading them out loud to my daughter. I'd read a page and then she'd read half a page. We laughed together at Cam's attitude. This is a great series and I am studying it as part of my research on chapter books.

cute and clever. I prefer the cam jansen books that don't rely solely on her memory. this one had a great deal of logic and human behavior in it. I can't wait for my niece to read it!

In this book, they are in a store called Binky's department Store, and they are shopping for school supplies. When Cam and Eric, was at the store there was a person in a blue flower dress, with blue curly hair and glasses steeling people's things and Cam has a memory o pictures, so when she wants to remember something she goes click like a camera.

In this book they are having a problem where there is a woman in a blue flower dress and she is stealing peoples things and returning the things for th

These were my absolute favorite books in elementary school! They are so exciting and fun and easy reads. They were probably the first books I read when I was able to read longer books. I read so many! So when I found this one again I was so excited and had to read it. It brought back all the happy feelings I had about them when I was little. I miss those days. It was definitely a kids book and not one that I would just read now but it still entertained me. Cam Jansen has a photographic memory wh ...more

Cam Jansen is a 5th grader with a photographic memory. She uses her memory to solve mysteries. She says the word "click" as she takes a picture with her eyes. She can then compare memories like you would compare two photos. That alone doesn't allow her to solve mysteries, but she is able to figure out the mystery anyway.

The books are relatively short, and can be read quickly. She is similar to Encyclopedia Brown, but the mystery takes the entire book, instead of a couple of pages. This allows th

This is another fun mystery from the Cam Jansen series. In this tale, she and her friend Eric are shopping for school supplies at the local Department store and help catch a thief. The story was quite busy, with a couple of plot lines going at one time and lots of activity. It was a good story, but at times it felt like the author was adding filler to the story to make it longer. In any case, our girls really love this series and we will certainly read more!

(As much as we love the new covers, th

I really liked this book because at the end of the book, Cam Jansen got some free candy and I would like to be given free candy, too.

My favorite part was when Cam Jansen caught the thief and got the free candy as a reward.

My least favorite part was when everyone's stuff was stolen because I wouldn't like my stuff to be stolen. The thief would steal shopping bags and then return the items from the bags to the store and keep the money.

The Cam Jensen books were my absolute favorite when I was younger. When my mom would but a new one for our family's collection, my sister and I used to fight over who got to read it first. Cam's attitude, the intense mystery, and the silly adventures has lead to have an interest in these books even now. As I become a teacher and maybe even a parent, I would recommend this book to any young children for a fun and easy chapter book to read.
